From the Minnesota Department of Transportation - September 15, 2021

Construction at Silver Creek on Hwy 61 north of Two Harbors will begin on September 15. Work this fall will include the construction of a temporary bypass at Silver Creek, associated earth retention system and a surcharge for the bridge. 

Traffic will be shifted over on Hwy 61 until the temporary bypass is completed at which time traffic will be placed on the temporary bypass through Fall 2022. Motorists should expect intermittent flagging, restricted to Monday-Thursdays only. All work this fall will be limited to the Silver Creek area. Project work will resume in 2022 and continue into 2023.
