Southbound Interstate 35 Through Duluth Closed For Bridge Pier Repairs

MnDOT

If southbound Interstate 35 through Duluth is a part of your travel route this week, you may want to find an alternative route. Monday evening the Minnesota Department of Transportation closed southbound Interstate 35 between Lake Avenue and 21st Avenue West).

The closure is expected to last several days following bridge inspectors finding a deteriorated piling that needs to be repaired before the southbound lanes can be reopened. The Northland’s News Center is reporting MnDOT’s closing of the lanes is just a precautionary measure due to the amount of deterioration found during an inspection recently.

Detour Details

Local traffic can use Interstate 35 southbound between 26th Avenue East and Lake Avenue. Southbound traffic must exit at the exit to Lake Avenue and 5th Avenue West, which is where the road closure begins.

The official posted detour for the closed section of I-35 follows London Road, 12th Avenue East, 3rd Street, Mesaba Avenue, Michigan Street, and 21st Avenue West, where traffic rejoins I-35.

For people looking to travel eastbound down Mesaba Avenue toward southbound I-35, a detour is in place following Michigan Street to 21st Avenue West, where traffic rejoins I-35.
