Interstate 35 and ore dock bridges temporarily affected

DULUTH, Minn. —Interstate 35, just south of Duluth will close temporarily for emergency road repairs, Tuesday, June 26, from 5:30 a.m. to approximately 8:30 a.m. The closed area will be from the southbound I-35 on-ramp at Highway 61 to Scanlon.

Highway 61 and Highway 45 will be used as an alternate route.

The emergency road patching repairs are needed as a result of the torrential rain associated with the June 19 storm that passed through northeastern Minnesota.

Traffic on the Ore Dock Bridges, located south of 27th Avenue West in Duluth, will be restricted to a single lane in each direction until Tuesday, June 26 to complete a bridge painting project.
