Our travel alert involves two of our local bridges, both being affected beginning next month.  If you use either the Oliver or Blatnik bridge, this is a MUST READ.

To start the Oliver Bridge between Highway 39 and Wisconsin Highway 105 will be closed between November 3-7 from 8:30-5p for a scheduled inspection according to CN Railway.

Meanwhile, there will be some traffic delays expected on the Blatnik bridge about the same time.  Routine inspections will be conducted the first week of November from 9a-3p.

Traffic affected on the Blatnik will be Superior to Duluth bound, except during peak travel times. Motorists are reminded to use caution during this time.

In addition, the ramp from northbound I-535 to southbound I-35 and the ramp from northbound I-535 to northbound 53 will be closed and detoured on Thursday November 6.
