DULUITH, MN (KDAL) - The Duluth bound right lane on the Blatnik Bridge will re-open to traffic around 6 p-m Friday. There will be some minor finishing work next week that could require some temporary lane closures but the major work on the bridge is complete. That includes repainting the splash zone on the bridge and installing a new energy efficient LED decorative lighting system. The two year project also included repairing and strengthening the gusset plates on the main span to improve the load carrying capacity. The bridge expansion joints were also replaced.
