Highway 73 south of Hibbing construction traffic control change July 20

DULUTH, Minn. –The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be starting additional bridge construction work on Highway 73 south of Hibbing on July 20. Work is currently taking place over the West Swan River bridge with traffic detoured. A second closure will be required just north of County Road 18 to replace a deteriorating metal culvert with a concrete box culvert.
The highway will be fully closed at both locations. The detour route takes Highway 169 to Highway 65 to County Road 18. A local traffic detour will take County Road 16 to access locations between the two closures.

A map can be found on the project website here: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d1/projects/hwy73bridge/index.html . Work is expected to last until early September.
