Road-sweeping project scheduled for Blatnik Bridge on Monday

Bridge deck sweeping is tentatively scheduled to take place Monday on the Superior-bound lanes of the Blatnik Bridge, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.

The annual sweeping is done to clean the driving surface and prevent debris from clogging drains.

The work is set to begin after 9 a.m. and be completed by 3 p.m. to avoid the morning and afternoon commutes. Drivers may encounter some traffic delays while the work is underway.

If it rains Monday - and rain is in the forecast - the work will be postponed until Tuesday or Wednesday.
