Hwy 61/London Road lane restrictions in Duluth begin Oct. 1


DULUTH, Minn. — Motorists traveling on Hwy 61/London Road near the Lester River Bridge in Duluth will encounter daytime lane closures Monday, Oct. 1 and Tuesday, Oct. 2. The work requiring the lane closures is expected to be completed in two days; however it is possible the work and lane closures may extend into Wednesday.


Flaggers will control traffic. Both lanes will reopen each evening at dusk.

Crews will be working beneath the bridge using bridge access equipment mounted to a truck parked on top of the bridge.
This project will complete the Lester River Bridge rehabilitation project that began in 2010. The project, which included approach grading and new pavement, was done to help maintain and preserve the historic bridge.
