Everything you need to know: Traffic advisories for 2014 Duluth Air Show

August 22, 2014 Updated Aug 22, 2014 at 1:25 PM CDT

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Duluth Air Show kicks off Saturday, Aug. 23 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 24.

Entrances to General Event Parking Lots are on Airbase Road, which is accessible from Stebner Road, Swan Lake Road or Arrowhead Road.

Entrance to the VIP Lot is from Cirrus Drive off of Miller Trunk Hwy 53.
Traffic exiting the event becomes very heavy between 5 -7 p.m.; during these times emphasis is placed on exiting traffic flow, and vehicle flow into the event area is limited.

General Northbound traffic on Haines Road will be directed to turn East on Arrowhead Road during event breakup, with the exception of motorists needing to get to the Duluth International Airport.

There will be one northbound lane of Haines Road reserved for vehicles needing assistance crossing Arrowhead Road to access the Airport. Duluth Police Officers will be at that corner to assist.

Grinden Drive, along the Duluth International Airport, will be posted "No Stopping".

That roadway will be patrolled, and vehicles in violation will be tagged.
Motorists in the area of the Air Show should slow down, drive with care, and watch for signs, barricades, pedestrians and Police Officers directing traffic.

Some parking in the Air Show Lot has been reduced because of wet conditions.

Carpooling is strongly recommended. Parking will be allowed in the Miller Hill Parking Lot, and free shuttle buses will run continuously to and from the Duluth Air Show.

Look for the posted "Air Show Shuttle Bus" signs in the Miller Hill lot for bus stop locations.

If you have any questions call Duluth Police Officer Bill Stovern at 218-730-5678.
