While driving home from Minneapolis this weekend, I noticed a couple of signs announcing construction projects about to begin on I-35 that will impact northbound traffic.  It's that time of the year and Monday the City of Duluth announced a project within the city.

Beginning today, the east bound lane of 9th Street at the intersection of 6th Avenue will be closed to allow for the patching of the pavement due to a prior water main break. The west bound lane will remain open to traffic.

The work will also require the closure of the right lane of north bound 6th Avenue East just below 9th Street.

If you ride the bus, the DTA will detour their bus route for this project and utilize 10th Street, turn at 7th Ave East, and head down to 9th Street to continue east

These closures are expected to last through Friday, April 21 if all goes according to plan.
