The Minnesota Department of Transportation has scheduled a public meeting in Floodwood next week for the $7.2 million resurfacing of Highway 73 from Cromwell to just south of Hibbing later this year.

The meeting will be 6-7 p.m. on April 18 at Floodwood City Hall, 111 W. Eighth Ave.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to view layouts, ask questions and learn more about the project, said a Minnesota Department of Transportation news release on Tuesday.

The work is a resumption of a project started last fall. All told, almost 30 miles of Highway 73 roadway is being resurfaced. It also includes new curb, gutter and sidewalk in Floodwood.
