The city of Duluth announced the beginning of the Construction and what parts will be started.

Construction of the new WWI Memorial at Memorial Park will begin on Tuesday, May 28th, 2019. A WWI Memorial has existed at Memorial Park for over 90 years. Over time, many of the plaques have been damaged, destroyed or are now missing. Multiple master plans have been conducted on the park over the past 7 years, and each has called for a new WWI memorial.

The scope of memorial construction includes:

•    Site Landscaping

•    Concrete slab and circulation sidewalk

•    Flag pole installation


Residents can expect to see workers on site at Memorial Park from May 28 to early July. Please be aware that you may notice staging of construction materials and an increase in noise produced by the equipment during work hours from 7:30 am - 6: 30 pm. The park will remain open during construction, with the exception of fenced construction areas.


After completion of site preparation, a second contractor will install the memorial itself.
