Flood Repair Projects Begin on Highway 61 Between Duluth and Two Harbors
Just because summer is wrapping up, you didn’t think construction was too, did you? We’ve received word from the Minnesota Department of Transportation about continued flood repair work that will impact Highway 61.
According to their press release, motorists traveling on Highway 61 between the Lester River Bridge in Duluth and Two Harbors may encounter single-lane restrictions until Nov. 16 as crews complete repairs related to the June 19–20 flood.
One lane will remain open in each direction at the work sites.
More than 40 locations will be repaired including areas near the Big Sucker River, Knife River, French River, Talmadge River and Schmidt Creek.
Work at these locations includes drainage repairs, grading, shoulder work and debris removal. Most of the projects will be completed sequentially.
