I-535 Blatnik Bridge traffic control removed

DULUTH, Minn. – Traffic on the I-535 Blatnik Bridge has been restored to two lanes in each direction as the maintenance project will be substantially complete on Sept. 10.  A temporary shoulder closure will be required in October when final drain grates are installed.

This project was completed to help extend the life of the bridge until the Blatnik Bridge is replaced in 2028. Visit the website for more details about the project at mndot.gov/d1/projects/blatnik-maintenance.
