Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)-- St. Louis County Public Works has announced that a small road north of Duluth is closed until next week.

Ives Road, also known as County Road 253, is closed due to a hole that suddenly developed near the abutment to a bridge.

Public works officials say warmer spring temperatures caused the soil failure. Motorists are encouraged to use Culbertson Road and Two Harbors Road as alternate routes at this time.

The road is expected to reopen on either Monday or Tuesday.
