Hwy 210 Bridge at Thomson scheduled to reopen in early-December
New bridge will also open
DULUTH, Minn. — A six-month-long rehabilitation project is nearing completion on the Hwy 210 Bridge at Thomson. The bridge is scheduled to reopen in early-December.
Completion of the project was delayed by severe flooding in June, which destroyed the bridge’s approaches and destroyed a 9-foot-diameter overflow culvert located adjacent to the bridge.
A new bridge has been constructed to replace the overflow culvert. When the St. Louis River is flowing at high volume, it can pass beneath the new bridge at far-greater volume than through the confines of a culvert.
