Why is this news (near the top of the page nonetheless) in Minneapolis? The answer of course is to generate clicks because the initial thought is that there is something wrong with the bridge. If the headline is "truck stalled on bridge, prompting closure" nobody cares.

someone traveling to Duluth/Superior today might want to take an alternate route so as to arrive on time for a meeting.

Thanks Star Tribune ! Those of us in Duluth and other Non Minneapolis areas that read the STrib online every morning really appreciate your outstate coverage .

The Duluth News-Tribune doesn't even have this story on their website.

I live in the Twin Cities, but I've always considered the Strib to be the paper for the entire State of Minnesota, and even parts of Western Wisconsin. No question that major stories out of Mpls and St. Paul will get more coverage, but I don't see why other stories (especially from decent sized cities like Duluth) aren't also worthy of coverage!

If you're such a fool that you click on stories because you suspect they MIGHT lead to hyped-up garbage, but it turns out to be an actual news event, that's not really the Strib's fault. This bridge serves thousands of people a day. PS: Am and have always been in the Twin Cities.

A 5,000-square-foot warehouse built especially for this purpose? Awe come on with all the vacant buildings in the twin cities we needed to spend more taxpayer money on this facility? Shameful!

This a simple steel pole barn. Nothing special and it appears to be just tin for roofing and siding. Seems based at $47 a sq ft we still paid too much. I've seen solid block buildings with 22 foot high inside hight for $52 per sq ft heated, insulated. I'm just sayin. We keep spending money but not in a fiscally responsible way for taxpayers.

A fitting homage to his sense of stewardship.
