Some games at this year’s Spirit of Duluth tournament will be played at SAHA Arena in Superior. However, most, if not all teams are staying at hotels in Duluth.
There is currently a construction closure of the southbound portion of I-35 in Duluth that connects to I-535, which is the most direct route to Superior and SAHA Arena from eastern and downtown Duluth. You can still access I-535 to Superior from eastern and downtown Duluth, but there is a detour. Information on the detour from MN DOT is at this website: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d1/
For teams staying in the Canal Park area of Duluth, the detour route to Superior is to: (1) take Lake Ave. over I-35 toward downtown Duluth; (2) turn left on Superior Street; (3) follow Superior Street to where it splits with Michigan Street; (4) veer left onto Michigan Street; (5) take Michigan Street to 19th Ave. W; (6) turn right on 19th Ave. W. for about 4 blocks; (7) turn left onto ramp for Hwy. 53 South/Piedmont Ave.; and (8) follow Hwy. 53 South/Piedmont Ave. to I-535 South to Superior. There are detour signs all along this route.
For teams staying farther east in Duluth (e.g., at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark), southbound I-35 is open to the Lake Ave./5th Ave. W. exit. You can take I-35 south to that exit to Lake Ave. and then follow the route above.
