May 7, 2012 Updated May 7, 2012 at 11:00 AM CDT

The DTA will detour its Route #16 buses onto the Bong Bridge en-route to Duluth because of construction on the Blatnik Bridge's northbound lane.

The northbound lane from Superior to Duluth will begin construction on Monday, May 14, and is expected to continue until mid-July.

The DTA does not expect major delays and passengers should anticipate buses to run as scheduled.

Buses traveling from Duluth to Superior will not be affected by the northbound lane closure on the bridge and will run regular routing.

The Route #16 buses arriving at 14th and Tower Avenue from Itasca will continue on Tower Avenue and detour to Winter Street, Banks Avenue, Belknap Street, Bong Bridge, 35W, Mesaba Avenue exit to Superior Street, and continue its regular route.

For those on the North End Superior, passengers traveling to Duluth will have to board the bus coming from Duluth and headed towards downtown Superior/Itasca.

Service from Goodwill Industries and Garfield Avenue to downtown Duluth will leave from Goodwill Industries at 12:15 p.m., 3:40 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Passengers wanting to travel to downtown Duluth are advised to take a Route #16 bus en-route to Superior and transfer on Tower Avenue to the Route #16 Duluth-Superior bus traveling to Duluth.
