Project Status: Design
Background Information: The city-owned, abandoned, Duluth Winnipeg, and Pacific (DWP) railroad corridor is currently used as an informal trail. The 100 ft. wide corridor (wider in some locations) runs continuously for about 10 miles from 63rd Street West to Becks Road, and eventually under I-35 to Proctor. The DWP is a very scenic route high above the river estuary and the Munger Trail with two steel trestles and a tunnel under Elys Peak.
Project Update: Restoration and stabilization of the former DWP railroad bridge will provide safe passage over Sargent Creek once complete. Goals of this project include addressing structural and safety concerns related to the existing structure and updating the bridge deck for pedestrian use. The project will replace the existing bridge deck with a low maintenance, pedestrian friendly surface, address structural deterioration on the west abutment as well as address ongoing erosion issues underneath the existing structure. The existing deck timbers will be removed and replaced with treated timber deck and a cable railing system will be installed for user safety and to provide unobstructed views of the St. Louis River Estuary.
Timeline: Bid and construction timeline to be updated once determined.
Public meetings related to the planning process will announced via City of Duluth press releases and community calendars. Please sign up for City of Duluth communication updates, subscribe by using: http://www.duluthmn.gov/web-subscriptions/sign-up/
