Weekend Travel Adisory And Parking Information For Bentleyville

The weather has certainly cooperated for families to get out and enjoy Bentleyville early this year!  Last weekend we were driving Southbound on I-35 and saw a HUGE back-up on the Northbound lanes near Bentleyville.  I immediately asked my husband if there was a UMD hockey game, symphony performance or something that was causing the back-up.  It was Bentleyville and that has prompted the Duluth Police Department to issue a traffic advisory and information about additional parking.

Why Is Cathy Kates Going Over The Edge For The Greater Downtown Council

Downtown Duluth holds such wonderful childhood memories for me.  My uncle Russell was a VP at North Shore Bank in the early 70's and I would visit him at his big desk.  From there we would walk to Oreck's, Glass Block and I absolutely loved going to Woolworth's.  That was an era before there was an Interstate 35, so traveling to downtown Duluth was just as fun as shopping.
