Temporary traffic signal in use during repair work at Hwy 42 bridge near Kellogg

KELLOGG, Minn. – Motorists using Highway 42 at the Gorman Creek bridge near Highway 61 and Kellogg will encounter a temporary traffic signal for approximately 10 days during repair work, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The signal will allow traffic to drive over an open lane on the bridge, while traffic on the other side waits. The signal will then change to allow traffic from other direction to travel across the bridge. Short delays are likely, while motorists wait for traffic to pass from the other direction. The signal will be functioning around the clock during the repair work.

Crews are doing work along the shoulder at the bridge. Work has begun.
