DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Motorists in northeastern Minnesota will encounter slow-moving traffic on Highway 61 near Split Rock River.

Heavy rains have caused a two-mile long, gravel, temporary road surface in a MnDOT construction zone to become muddy and rough.

Traffic is moving at about 5 mph in that area.

MnDOT suggests using an alternate route until the temporary road surface is repaired.

Crews tried to repair the road surface Wednesday but decided it’s best to wait until conditions improve.
