MnDOT to clear trees along Hwy 2 beginning this week

DULUTH, Minn. — Beginning this week, MnDOT maintenance crews will be clearing trees and brush at select locations along Hwy 2 from Hwy 200 to Gunn Road near Grand Rapids. Trees being cleared are on state right of way, not private property.

Trees are being cleared at culvert locations along Hwy 2 and are in preparation of the reclaim and overlay project coming this summer. The tree clearing is not as extensive as originally planned due to MnDOT not securing a contract for the clearing.
