Hwy 61 in Two Harbors reduced to a single lane September 24‒27

Duluth, Minn. – Motorists traveling through Two Harbors on Highway 61 at 6th Street will be restricted to a single lane, one direction at a time, controlled by a temporary signal Monday, September 24 through Thursday, September 27. The single lane section is only a few hundred feet long at 6th Street.

The traffic restriction is necessary as crews work on a deep storm sewer pipe. Temporary concrete barrier will separate traffic from the work area.

The 7th Street signal will be “flashing red”, functioning as a stop sign. Access to downtown will be provided on 7th Street. The side streets at 6th Street will be closed during this time.

Please see the map included with this news release for additional details.
