Rep. Nolan: Highway 169 compromise alternative in the works

July 17, 2014 Updated Jul 17, 2014 at 2:08 PM CDT

Soudan, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Big changes could be coming to Highway 169 in northern Minnesota following an agreement reached by federal officials.

8th District Congressman Rick Nolan gave his tentative approval on a solution addressing dangers associated with the road.

The possible fixes could include ending black ice cover during the winter and straightening out curves and widening several shoulders.

The Congressman says the plan ensures businesses and motorists will have full access to the road during the construction phrase.

More details about the agreement are due out soon.
