Duluth was once again hit with a massive storm surge on October 10, 2018 causing additional damage to the Lakewalk Trail. Due to the extensive damage, the City is creating a temporary unpaved path between the Lighthouse Parking lot by the maritime museum and Endion Station. The City crews cleaned up debris, large rocks, cement sections, dangling light fixtures and dislodged boards. The interim goal is to create a safe accessible path for trail users until permanent repairs can be made. The City is seeking emergency aid.
The pedestrian trail by the Ledges residential units is closed until further notice due to significant erosion.
See the following video of the aftermath of the storm.
