Nashwauk intersection temporary solution being installed next week

DULUTH, Minn. — Beginning Tuesday, crews will be installing signs that alert drivers of the upcoming intersection at Highway 169 and Highway 65 by Nashwauk.

Signs will be installed along southbound Highway 169, warning drivers there is an intersection ahead and an advisory speed limit of 55 mile per hour. Flashing lights will be installed on the intersection ahead sign when they are available in about a month to six weeks. MnDOT will also be installing slippery bridge signs on northbound Highway 169 to warn drivers of slippery bridge conditions during the winter. This solution is a temporary solution while MnDOT works with the City of Nashwauk, Itasca County, business owners and other community members to determine the best permanent solution at the intersection.
