MnDOT asks public to use caution on Hwy 11 bypasses near Rainy Lake

DULUTH, Minn. – MnDOT asks the public to use caution on the Hwy 11 bypasses near Dove Island on Rainy Lake. Motorists must follow the directions on the signalized system as it is timed appropriately for the travel distance. Travel only when the signal is green and wait until the next cycle before entering the bypass as traffic may be approaching from the other direction. Do not stop in the bypass for any reason including to observe conditions or take pictures.

Drive slow and use caution in areas where water is near the road. Water levels and road conditions will continue to be closely monitored.
