Highway 61 Storm Sewer Work Near Two Harbors Happens This Week
A project that was supposed to happen a couple of weeks ago has started in Two Harbors - impacting drivers along Highway 61. Earlier plans to wok on a storm sewer pipe near 6th Street had to be rescheduled due to various impacts; that work is now being performed by work crews with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Drivers will be restricted to a single lane - one direction at a time - controlled by a temporary traffic signal which will be in place until the work is done. The single lane section is only a few hundred feet long - where 6th Street meets up with Highway 61. MNDOT crews are working on a deep storm sewer - which is resulting in the lane closures. A temporary concrete barrier will be in place to separate traffic from the work zone until it is complete.
The 7th Street signal will be set to "flashing red" - functioning as a stop sign. Access to downtown Two Harbors will be provided to drivers on 7th Street; the side streets at 6th Street will be closed for the time being.
