Motorists traveling on Highway 53 just south of Eveleth in St. Louis County will encounter temporary lane closures beginning Monday, as a major resurfacing and bridge repair project begins.
The Anchor Lake Rest Area will also close Monday. During the closure, accessibility improvements will be made. The rest area is expected to reopen in late September.
The entire project is slated for completion in late October.
