Outbound Route 16 Detour Due to Bong Bridge Closure
Published: Expires: 10/1/2014
Beginning May 5th, Bong Bridge construction will cause all Duluth bound traffic from Superior to divert to the Blatnik Bridge. Increased traffic is expected along northbound Hammond Avenue, hampering left turn maneuvers from Hammond Avenue to North 5th Street.
Effective May 5thoutbound (Superior bound) route 16 buses are to detour as follows:
Outbound Route 16: Regular route to the base of the Blatnik bridge, then detour by following off ramp (clover leaf exit) to South Highway 53. Follow Highway 53 south to Grand Avenue, then turn right. Follow Grand Avenue one block to North 5th Street, then turn left. Continue on regular route once on North 5th Street.
Inbound Route 16: Regular Route.
This detour is a long term detour and expected to last until late 2014.
