Drivers who take the Highway 37 short-cut on the Iron Range can expect major impacts for the rest of the summer as MNDOT crews kick-off a $4.2 million resurfacing project.  The good news: When it's done, it'll greatly improve the roadway.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, road crews will start the project on Monday, July 24.  During the work, multiple areas of lane closures can be expected - reducing the highway to one-way, alternating traffic - utilizing a pilot car and flagger system.  The scope of the project is the entire stretch of Highway 37 from 169 (Hibbing) east to Highway 53.

The work is anticipated being wrapped up by mid-October 2017.
