On October 26, 2017, Duluth experienced a major storm surge which destroyed millions of dollars’ worth of shoreline, Lakewalk Trail, storm sewer and seawall infrastructure.
Unprecedented lake levels, 10 foot waves, 50-60 mph winds dramatically uplifted and changed the landscape.
Just as Duluth developed a recovery plan, an April 15, 2018 storm ravaged this area again, dropping layers of ice and 13 inches of snow with wind and waves pummeling the already eroded shoreline. As the City looks to rebuild and restore the Trail for public use; climate adaptation for resiliency is a key factor.
On October 8, 2018, the City announced the start of emergency repairs to the Lakewalk Trail section located between the veteran memorials and Leif Erikson Park. Mike LeBeau explains the project: https://www.facebook.com/210522078966064/videos/676393072745647/?t=83
What can the public expect?
Timeline for initial phase: October 8 until the end of December 2018
Phase 2: Trail reopens in January 2019 until the spring, when additional work is needed to install the boardwalk and asphalt pavement.
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.
