Tall Ships Offer Traffic Challenge, Get The Changes Here

The Tall Ships are coming to Duluth and docking in the bay. Many people look forward to the event and goes to the bay and want to see. The challenge is not only with car traffic, it’s also with sail traffic.

The Duluth Police offer this plan for the coming event.

On Thursday, July 25, the Tall Ships will have a “Grand Parade of Sail” starting at 2:00 p.m. The ships will enter the Bay area through the ship canal in three waves. Expect extreme traffic congestion in the Canal Park/Aerial Lift Bridge area during the entire afternoon of July 29. Police suggest that those wanting to view the “sail-in” (Parade of Sail) should park in the DECC, Bayfront, or downtown areas and walk to the waterfront. The festival grounds area will open at 11:00 AM on Thursday.

Many Tall Ship events will be taking place in the Bayfront Park area on Friday, July 26, Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28. The festival grounds area will open at 9:00 a.m. each day and will stay open until 11:00 PM. During this time period, expect large amounts of traffic on 5th Avenue West, Railroad Street, Garfield Avenue and in the Canal Park area. Significant traffic delays should be expected. Watch for officers directing traffic in these areas.

Enjoy, but be aware of the other people around you.

Here’s a printable PDF version of the plan.
