Campus Connector Trail

Project Status: Fundraising

Project Overview:

The Campus Connector trail is a paved, multi-use commuter recreational trail that will run from the Lakewalk to Rice Lake Road. The trail will provide vertical connectivity for residents, nodes of business and education institutes along its path. This will be the first paved, vertical commuter corridor in Duluth. Initial planning started in 2010. Planning efforts will address the current gap in existing bike and pedestrian infrastructure and result in a Mini-Master Plan.

Project Update:

A portion of the Campus Connector Trail along Congdon Parkway was completed in 2014. In 2016, the City installed bike lanes along College Street. In partnership with the Metropolitan Interstate Council, planning efforts resumed in late 2018 and will refine the planning scope as well as develop public and stakeholder engagement opportunities. Duluth City Council approved the Campus Connector Trail Mini-Master Plan on October 28, 2019.
