Mesaba Avenue project to partially close intersection and ramp in Duluth

Duluth, Minn. –The Mesaba Avenue reconstruction/bridge project in Duluth will require the closure of the parts of the intersection at Central Entrance/Mesaba Avenue/6th Avenue and Rice Lake Road again this coming weekend. The partial closure will occur from 7 p.m., Friday, August 24 through 5 a.m., Monday, August 27. Limited movements will be allowed. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes or use the posted detour route.

The ramp from southbound I-35 to eastbound Highway 2 remains closed until Thursday, August 30. This closure is necessary to allow crews to paint the portion of the ramp that is over water. To expedite progress, the contractor is working seven days per week during this closure.

The signed detour will be south on I-35 to Central Avenue, back north on I-35 and right on the ramp to eastbound Highway 2.
