Motorists will encounter single lane traffic on London Road between 32nd Avenue East and 40th Avenue East. Traffic restrictions will start Monday and continue until August 8.

A twelve-foot wide restriction will also be in place between those dates. The project includes tree removal, repairs to historic bluestone arches and repairs to storm sewers damaged during the 2012 flood.

A new detour on Highway 73 starts Monday due to a bridge replacement project at the West Swan River. The bridge is located about one mile south of County Road 16 and 10 miles south of Hibbing. The detour will use County roads 16, 18, and 20. The new bridge will improve safety and freight movement and is expected to end on August 22.
