Please Stop Turning Onto Belknap At Tower Avenue Intersection

Road construction has been taking place for quite some time now on Belknap Street in Superior.  It's a necessary evil, as this stretch has needed to be fixed for quite some time.  A glaring problem has come up though, and it's frustrated quite a few people.  You aren't supposed to turn from Tower Avenue onto Belknap Street, but people still do.   This causes some pretty bad traffic congestion.

The Northland Shouldn’t Turn Their Nose Up At Roundabouts

A couple of years ago, a roundabout was put in at the foot of the Bong Bridge in Superior.   People lost their mind.  What is this new confusing circle intersection?  People drove the wrong way on it, failed to yield, and in at least one case drove right over the top of the darn thing.

Seriously, What Do We Have To Do To Get Drivers To Understand The Zipper Merge!?

The zipper merges is the process that the flipping DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION tells you to do.  When a sign says merge ahead, wait until the merge point to change lanes.  USE BOTH LANES UP UNTIL THE MERGE TO PREVENT A BACK UP!

What Caused The Traffic Jam In Canal Park Today? [VIDEO]

There was quite the ruckus about the snarl of traffic in Canal Park today.  It's the height of the tourist season and it seems that the Aerial Lift Bridge was down to one lane to be cleaned.  One would wonder why it has to be done now.  After talking with Aerial Lift Bridge Supervisor, Dave Campbell, it was more than "just a cleaning" and it makes perfect sense.

As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.
