Scenic Highway 61 to close for culvert repair
Contractors will replace a culvert under Scenic Highway 61 along Lake Superior and temporarily close the road next week near McQuade Road.
The St. Louis County Highway Department said work on the project will begin this week. The road will be closed at the site Oct. 1-5.
The new culvert will better handle the stream flowing under the road and is expected to reduce erosion problems in the area.
