The Duluth Lakewalk will be extended this spring to include a pedestrian tunnel that will allow users to cross Highway 61 safely. On April 8th, as part of the construction of Phase 5 of the Lakewalk East Extension, the City of Duluth will be closing Congdon Boulevard north of 61st Avenue East.

Highway 61 and Scenic 61 traffic will be detoured to East Superior Street and 60th Avenue East. A temporary traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of 60th Avenue East and Superior Street. Construction of the pedestrian tunnel will be completed and the detour removed on June 19.

 

Drivers in the area are advised that there will be traffic congestion and delays due to the closure. If possible, taking alternate routes around the construction is advised. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause motorists.

The public may call (218)730-5104 or email Matt Decur (mdecur@duluthmn.gov), Project Engineer, with any questions.
