Douglas Drive to close starting Monday, June 17

The closure is needed for Union Pacific to complete railroad crossing work.

Closure timing

Weather permitting, this segment of Douglas Drive is expected to be closed for approximately five days. 

Getting around the closure

Through traffic

There will be a marked detour for all through traffic by motor vehicle. It uses:

  • Highway 55
  • Highway 100
  • Duluth Street (County Road 66)

Local access

There will be driveway access to businesses within the closure area, as well as to the Luce Line Trail entrance immediately south of the railroad crossing.

The sidewalk and trail will be closed at the railroad crossing. People walking and biking will need to use alternate routes to get around the closure. Once the railroad crossing work is complete, the sidewalk and trail will be usable by people biking and walking.
