I 35 tunnels

We are taking a trip to the northeast corner of Minnesota. Google maps and other gps systems are taking us up I 35 thru Duluth to the North. I noticed that there are a few tunnels up there between Duluth and Two Harbors. Does anybody know how tall they are? I 35 is a major hwy that runs from Texas to Duluth so I would guess these tunnels should be more than 14' in height. I tried a few searches but couldn't find an answer. According to the book our rig is 13' 4". Of course I assume it's taller. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!

IH 35 ends in Duluth and to go on to Two Harbors it is a two or four lane road. I don't remember any tunnels but there may be. I do know that big rigs travel that route because of the shipping on the Lake. Have a great trip.

We encounter NO tunnels going to Two Harbor a couple of years ago. There is a tunnel/s North of Two Harbor, but it appeared to be tall enough for RV's.

Have a safe trip, check out a little sandwich shop downtown near the train station, it is behind the bar and grille. Nice area to visit.

Thanks for the info! I will post an update when we get home if we come across any tunnels! It's always very exciting to visit new areas!

I just checked I35 that turns into Rt 61 to Two Harbors. Just north of Duluth there are two bridges at 9' high. If you take the parallel road Rt 23 you will miss the bridges. Then I don't see low bridges to Two Harbors.

2 years ago we took I-35 to Duluth and then Rt 61 to Two Harbor, and there were no low bridges, went there with the Lacrosse, 11' 4''. RV's running all the time from Duluth on past Two Harbors. Should be no problem.

Rt. 61 is clear of any low bridges Two Harbors to Thunder Bay. But like said you need to run Rt.23 till it comes back into Rt. 61. This is from Allstays Low Clearance App.

Never got on Rt 23. Went from I-35 to Rt 61. Followed Trailer Life Navigator computer program. No LOW Bridges or Tunnels. Put in my length and height and followed Navigators routing.

We did the trip last year and I remember one tunnel and it was plenty large enough. We went from Duluth to Thunder Bay without issue. If you want to see a few pics along the way check out my profile and there is photo album from the trip.
