PDD Video Lab: A Whole New Can of Worms - Perfect Duluth Day

PDD Video Lab: A Whole New Can of Worms

In a world where Duluth’s “Can of Worms” area is untangled and all the city’s hillside vegetation dies, comes a new video from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

When the PDD A/V squad saw MnDOT’s silent “Drive Through Animation,” the need to add music was overwhelming. The soundtrack above is a clip from Anthony Bennett’s song “Can of Worms” from the 2012 album Hello Cruel World. Tony is also PDD’s calendar editor, though he wasn’t in the lab when we picked his music.

MnDOT’s plan to replace Duluth’s infamous “Can of Worms” is called the Twin Ports Interchange. The project seeks to improve the design of I-35 in the Lincoln Park neighborhood where I-535 and Highway 53 intersect it. The stated goal is to “enhance safety by eliminating blind merges and left exits, replace aging infrastructure, and better accommodate freight movements through the interchanges next to the Clure Public Terminal.”

Work begins next year on the $345-million project, and will continue into 2023.

Here’s another version of the video, incorporating a little Steppenwolf.
