DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The largest road construction project ever tackled by the St. Louis County Public Works Department is now ready to open. The Haines Road, between West Duluth and Hermantown, sustained major damage during the June flood in 2012 and has been closed for 16 months. The 12 million dollar project is complete and the road re-opens to traffic at noon on Tuesday. Besides repairing the flood damage, the road was widened and now includes an underpass for the Superior Hiking Trail and several retaining walls. The road was scheduled for reconstruction anyway, but the timetable was accelerated due to the flooding last year.
