Hwy 1, North Shore Drive closed for construction
Work has begun on Minnesota Highway 1 between Ely and Minnesota Highway 61. Culverts were slated for replacement in Murphy City, closing roads this week. Additional grading work will continue through mid-September, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Motorists will be detoured onto Lake County Road 7 and Forest Road 172. Much of the 37- mile detour will be on gravel roads. Two paved routes have been determined, and maps will be available at detour entrances.
