Mt. Iron County Road 102 Relocation Moving Forward

Progress is being made on plans to move a county road in Mt. Iron for mining.

The hotel developer who owns the Holiday Inn Express says he just closed a deal with US Steel on a small parcel of land for the relocated County Road 102. It will run along the north side of his property behind the Walmart and connect with the original part. Minntac is working on an extension to their pits, which means the current 102  will be mined over. 

"It's a positive move. It's job security" said Mt. Iron Mayor Gary Skalko. "The mine now is extending its length of operation. For us as a city on the new 102, we have all the infrastructure ready to go on 102 for commercial development there."

Skalko says residents should expect to see work beginning soon and that the county would like the road finished by the end of the year.
