For anyone that uses the Blatnik Bridge to travel between Duluth and Superior, you should look for an alternative route starting August 22. A scheduled repair project to the bridge is set to begin on Monday, August 22 that will have a significant impact on traffic into October.
When does the Bong Bridge open again? A two-week bridge inspection is planned for the Blatnik Bridge's Superior-bound lanes - November 2 through November 10. Traffic heading towards Superior from Duluth will be restricted to one single lane during daytime hours: 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
