Superior’s Wisconsin Point Receives $1.4 Million Grant
It’s no secret that Lake Superior looms large as probably the largest natural resource we have in our area. The Twin Ports benefits from the largest freshwater lake in the world in many ways. Both Duluth and Superior have a variety of man-made and natural access points to Lake Superior. A recently-awarded grant will help to shore-up one of those access points on the Superior side.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, the City of Superior is the recent recipient of $1.4 million in grant money from the Coastal Management Program to restore the infamous sand dunes that dot the roadway at Wisconsin Point; $1.375 million will go direct to the restoration process, with an additional grant of $24,664 funding a comprehensive outdoor plan.
Along with maintaining the integrity of the area for the future, the work will also open up additional parking on Wisconsin Point – adding almost 25 more parking spots.
