Cross City Trail Wayfinding

Image

Project Status: Design

Project Overview:

The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a 10.3-mile multi-purpose, non-motorized, wheelchair accessible, paved trail system that connects the Lakewalk in downtown Duluth to the Munger Trail, as well as the Western Waterfront Trail, in western Duluth. The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a one-of-a-kind, off-road trail for non-motorized trail users of all ages and abilities. The trail will provide a connection from the Willard Munger State Trail to the Duluth Lakewalk, offer safe access to distinctive natural areas in western Duluth, present exceptional views of the St. Louis River Corridor and estuary, and fill a gap in a significant state trail route from central Minnesota to the North Shore of Lake Superior. Signage and wayfinding will be installed along three trail segments: Zoo to Green Street, River Route and from Carlton Street to the Lakewalk.

Project Update:

Staff are working through final design and placement of trail signage and hope to bid the project in winter 2019/20 for summer 2020 construction.
