Cross City Trail


Project Status: Pre-Bid (2019 construction of Carlton Street to Irving Park Segment). 

Project Overview: The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a 10.3-mile multi-purpose, non-motorized, wheelchair accessible, paved trail system that connects the Lakewalk in downtown Duluth to the Munger Trail, as well as the Western Waterfront Trail, in western Duluth. The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a one-of-a-kind, off-road trail for non-motorized trail users of all ages and abilities. The trail will provide a connection from the Willard Munger State Trail to the Duluth Lakewalk, offer safe access to distinctive natural areas in western Duluth, present exceptional views of the St. Louis River Corridor and estuary, and fill a gap in a significant state trail route from central Minnesota to the North Shore of Lake Superior. 

Project Update: Construction will start on a major new segment of the Cross City Trail in 2019. The “River Route” will run from the current western end of the trail at Carlton Street, under the ore docks, across Interstate 35 and through the riverfront area. The western end of the new segment will be at Irving Park.
