Highway 61 in Two Harbors reduced to one lane Oct. 8

Motorists traveling through Two Harbors on Minnesota Highway 61 at Sixth Street will be restricted to a single lane, one direction at a time, controlled by a temporary signal, beginning Monday, Oct. 8. The single lane section is only a few hundred feet long at Sixth Street.

Traffic restrictions, related towork originally scheduled from Sept. 24-27, are necessary as crews work on a deep storm sewer pipe. A temporary concrete barrier will separate traffic from the work area.

The Seventh Street signal will be flashing red, functioning as a stop sign. Access to downtown will be provided on Seventh Street. The side streets at Sixth Street will be closed during this time.
