The Lakewalk and Brighton Beach have experienced damage from recent storm events and will experience future damage unless the City acts to ensure its long-term resiliency by mitigating the impacts of future events. The City of Duluth, with the help of a qualified landscape architecture firm and coastal engineering firm, will create a plan for improvements to the Lakewalk, starting at Endion Station and through Brighton Beach, that will ensure it’s long-term sustainability and resiliency. This project will include shoreline enhancements, potential trail relocation and reconstruction, improved access to shoreline beaches, replacement of non-native plant species, review of lighting and other safety features.
During construction, the Lakewalk and Brighton Beach will need to be closed for all uses and users in this section, possibly in stages. Check back here for updates.
