Segment of Old U.S. Highway 2 to close permanently by early September

Segment of Old U.S. Highway 2 to close permanently by early September

A small segment of Old U.S. Highway 2 near Morris Thomas Road will close permanently by early September. The short segment, more commonly recognized as the point where Morris Thomas Road crosses the current U.S. Highway 2, was originally expected to close next year as part of an intersection improvement project. However, St. Louis County and the City of Hermantown determined it was best to perform the closure now to avoid delays next spring that would have been required due to the project's proximity to a designated trout stream.
