DULUTH, MN -- Drivers can expect lane closures on the Blatnik Bridge starting Tuesday as crews begin a maintenance project.

Minnesota Department of Transportation officials say this project consists of drainage system improvements, deck repairs, concrete repairs, painting, and sealing work.

There will be single lane closures both northbound and southbound throughout the project, which according to MnDOT’s website, could last through September.

One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times.

This project will help extend the life of the bridge until the Blatnik Bridge is replaced in 2028.
