The Minnesota Department of Transportation has scheduled an open house to discuss restarting the Mission Creek Bridge replacement project.

The project was halted during the summer of 2017 when burial remains were disturbed during digging.

The public meeting will take place from 6-7 p.m. Thursday at the Gary New Duluth Recreation Center, 801 101st Ave. W., Duluth.

A formal presentation is not scheduled, according to a news release from MnDOT. Instead, the public can stop by at any time during the open house to ask questions and provide input about the bridge project and the realignment of state Highway 23.

The public can request language interpreters, including American Sign Language, by calling 651-366-4720.
