40th Avenue West bridge over I-35 in Duluth work to start May 15

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will start repair work underneath the 40th Avenue West bridge on I-35 in Duluth on Wednesday, May 15. Motorists traveling northbound can expect lane closures between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. daily. Work is expected to last for 10 days.
