Highway 73 Kettle River bridge open to traffic
Carlton County motorists travelling on Highway 73 will no longer encounter a detour. The newly constructed Highway 73 bridge over the west branch of the Kettle River opened to traffic last week.
Weekday lane closures will still be needed through Friday, Sept. 15 to complete bridge painting and the installation of final pavement markings.
There will be no restrictions to traffic on weekends for the remainder of the project.
