Road work sure to induce headaches

The Diamond Lake Road bridge is undergoing construction this weekend to repair its beams and has forced highway I-35W to be closed between downtown and Crosstown highway 62, adding to the traffic and transportation issues that the Twin Cities have been living with lately. The bridge on Diamond Lake Road has been under construction for a few months now and coupled with the bridge collapse earlier last month, it has been quite the season of inconvienence for drivers.

The major sporting events held over the weekend, The Gophers football game on Saturday, and the Vikings game on Sunday, were sure to make transportation even more difficult. Despite all the construction signs and notices throughout the cities, there are still worries regarding safety, and the state has added extra staff to enforce the traffic pace and safety across town.
