Bong Bridge maintenance began last week and, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the project is expected to continue through the next two weeks.

According to MnDOT, motorists travelling on Highway 2 over the Bong Bridge will encounter alternating lane closures for bridge maintenance activities through the week of September 25.

This operation will include alternating left and right lane closures in both directions, southbound-Superior bound and northbound-Duluth bound.  All work should take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m..

If you're traveling through the impacted area, please expect slower moving traffic and drive safely as there will be work crews out sharing the road with you.
