MOUNTAIN IRON, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)--If you have something to say about plans for re-directing Highway 53 on Minnesota's Iron Range, Tuesday night is your chance to comment.

Public comments will be accepted from 4-8 p.m. at the Mountain Iron Community Center.

A middle route through the Auburn Pit and an Eastern alternative going up around the Rouchleau Pit are outlined in the state's current scoping document.

A more detailed evaluation of the alternatives will be documented in the Environmental Impact Statement once the scoping phase is complete.
