FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
County Highway No. 7 Road Closure Scheduled for September 19
County Highway No. 7 between Minnesota Trunk Highway 33 and County Highway No. 8, located in Industrial Township, will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday, September 19 through Thursday, September 22 for the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. The road is expected to reopen to traffic on Friday, September 23. This closure is due to a soil investigation that is necessary to design the new bridge that will replace the existing bridge spanning the Cloquet River on County Highway No. 7.
During the time the road is closed, traffic will be detoured at Trunk Highway 33 and County Highway No. 8. St. Louis County regrets any inconvenience and asks for your patience as we work to improve the county’s transportation infrastructure for the traveling public.
