Hwy 1/169 resurfacing project near Ely nears completion for 2013

Work will resume in spring 2014

DULUTH, Minn. –This year’s scheduled construction work is nearing completion on a pavement resurfacing project just west of Ely.

Crews will finish a few punch-list items this week and hope to have the pavement markings painted by Friday. This work can only be done during dry conditions and moderate temperatures. The markings will be applied as soon as possible before work on the project subsides for the winter. 

When work on the project resumes in spring 2014, the area just west of Ely will receive the final layer of pavement and work will start in the project area south of Ely.   

For more information about this project please visit the project website.
