WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Congressman Rick Nolan met with U-S Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx last week to talk about weight exemptions that would allow logging trucks to use a portion of I-35 instead of Superior Street through downtown Duluth.  Secretary Foxx is now determining whether or not he has the authority to grant a federal exemption that would allow the trucks to use the freeway.  Nolan says if Foxx can't grant special weight exemptions, he will introduce legislation that would provide that authority.  The logging trucks use Superior Street through downtown Duluth because weight limits are lower on federal highways than on Minnesota state highways.
