St. Louis River

This early morning scene captures a crisp view of the St. Louis River and the John A. Blatnik High Bridge. The need to cross this broad river was discussed in Duluth's early history. Although introduced for budget consideration in 1930, it wasn't until 1961 when the bridge was completed, eventually funded through the Interstate Highway Program. Stretching for nearly two miles, the I-535 bridge crosses one of Lake Superior's largest tributaries.
