Visitors to the Northland will notice six new signs that dot the drive along the North Shore.

Made of rock, six Cairn signs were erected along the scenic highway to serve as landmarks.

Duluth, Two Harbors, Grand Marais, Grand Portage and Sugarloaf Interpretive Center are marked with the signs.

Gene Shaw, director of Visit Duluth, said the look of the signs is meant to blend in with the beauty of the North Shore.

"Even though we sometimes wish it was four lanes, [the scenic highway] was meant to be a scenic drive for people to enjoy," he said.

A ceremony recognizing the Duluth sign will take place at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Cairn sign on London Road past the Lester River and the Blue Booth Information Center. Representatives from Explore Minnesota Tourism, the City of Duluth and Visit Duluth will be in attendance.
