Latest UpdatesBeginning in May, this is where you will find the latest information on Project 61. MnDOT intends to hold weekly briefings on what has changed or is changing, what can be expected in the next week, etc., and we intend to write up those briefings so we can publicize the latest information here.
We do not expect a great deal of disruption in 2020. There will be a necessary detour around the Broadway Avenue intersection (the orange detour in the map above) while it is being reconstructed in May and June.
A detour also will be required in August when Highway 61 closes completely at County Road 7, about 8 miles west of town toward Duluth. The closure will last about a month while a box culvert is replaced at Fall River, about a mile west of Grand Marais.
