Restoration of a disturbed burial ground continued Thursday along Evergreen Memorial Highway on the western edge of Duluth.

DULUTH – A state road project that desecrated American Indian graves is "starting from scratch" next year after burial recovery wraps up this fall, Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) officials said at a community meeting Wednesday night.

The archaeological study of the disturbed ground on the far western edge of Duluth was completed earlier this month, and now MnDOT crews will be racing against the weather to return soil to the cemetery area so it can be officially designated.
