Route 5 detour near Duluth International Airport starting August 1st
Published: Expires: 10/1/2012
Starting Wednesday, August 1st, a permanent detour will start at the Duluth International Airport for the Route 5 buses as the airport prepares for demolition of the old terminal. The main road in front of the airport will close and force all buses to detour and turnaround in an existing parking lot. The detour route will be as follows:
Regular route to Airport, then detour before the main pick up/drop off road in front of the old terminal, to the upper lot currently used for handicapped parking. Run through to the upper part of lot to our temporary bus stop on north side of lot near fence. To exit, drive the perimeter of the lot and exit lot using same drive as used inbound (Please see attached map). Follow road west (right) in front of the new terminal, around the main parking area, and exit the airport to Haines Road and Airport Road as usual.
This detour will be in effect until January when the new terminal is expected to open.
