Project Status: Construction
- Invasive plant removal starts March 2016 - Trail maintenance to commence summer of 2016
In 2015, the City of Duluth received a $400,000 Conservation Partners Legacy Metro grant to rehabilitate the native plant species along the Western Waterfront Trail and adjacent public green space. $175,000 of ½ and ½ funding was used as grant match funds. The project will take two years to implement first with the removal of invasive plant species and then followed by the planting of native plant species. In addition, the City has committed to monitor the restoration for 20 years.
In the spring of 2015, the City of Duluth notified of being a recipient of a Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program NOAA grant for $100,000 to assist in the restoration of the Western Waterfront Trail. The scope of the grant will include the reestablishment of the original trail width, including replace and re-grading the gravel trail tread. In addition, repair and improve stormwater infrastructure including culvert replacement and restoring stormwater drainages. Resurfacing boardwalks and bridges with new rot-resistant timbers. Establish native vegetation to stability failing banks. Provide Universal Access upgrades to the trail for individuals with mobility impairments.
