From the Duluth News Tribune dated June 9, 2009. Make note if you are chasing in the area apparently through the summer on weekdays. It is a long ways around if you are chasing CN jobs up Steelton Hill. Wonder if they will ever take care of those big cracks in the concrete on each end of the bridge. Must not be a problem structurally having those giants cracks.
