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.

A map of the exact location of the construction project and e-mail updates on this and other St. Louis County Public Works projects are available.
