For those of us that use the Blatnik Bridge daily, this is very welcome news; all lanes will reopen three weeks ahead of schedule.

According to both MnDOT and WiDOT, all lanes will be open by 9 am tomorrow morning (10/7/2016).

The northbound off-ramp to Garfield Ave. will not open until late in the day Friday, to allow for the remaining work be completed.

The project has been underway since August 22nd, with crews busy repairing guardrails, installing new luminaires, upgraded signing and did deck sealing.
