Project Status: Construction
Construction Schedule: Construction starting end of September or beginning of October with work continuing until freeze up on Clyde Trail. Stewart Creek Bridge restoration will continue throughout winter season. Contracts must be finished by June 30, 2018.
Project Summary: The 2017 project scope is to stabilize the former DWP railroad bridge to provide safe passage over Stewart Creek. The adjacent Clyde Connector Trail component of the project will reestablish recreational trail access between the State's Munger Trail and Skyline Parkway.
Stewart Creek Bridge restoration includes replacement of deteriorated decking with modern wood decking, restoration of flood damaged concrete abutments, and installation of cable railings for fall protection. The bridge restoration will benefit diverse user groups and act as a critical connection to the accessible DWP Trail, the Superior Hiking Trail and the Duluth Traverse multi-use bike trail. The Clyde Connector Trail will contribute to a 9-mile equestrian loop, provide snowmobile trail system connectivity, and provide multi-use loop routes by connecting the Western Waterfront Trail, the Munger Trail, the DWP Trail, Skyline Parkway, and Magney Snively Park.
Background Information: The city-owned, abandoned, Duluth Winnipeg, and Pacific (DWP) railroad corridor is currently used as an informal trail. The 100 ft. wide corridor (wider in some locations) runs continuously for about 10 miles from 63rd Street West to Becks Road, and eventually under I-35 to Proctor. The DWP is a very scenic route high above the river estuary and the Munger Trail with several stone, steel, and wooden trestles and a tunnel under Elys Peak. The corridor provides an excellent opportunity for a multi-use regional trail. Significant restoration and repair is needed on the trestles, rail bed, and tunnel. Because of the wide right-of-way, the hardened nature of the former rail bed and its gentle grade, the DWP corridor is potentially suitable for biking, hiking/running, cross-country skiing, scenic slow-speed snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. The DWP acts as a spine for planned western Duluth trail networks, being one of the few places these user groups can traverse Magney Snively Natural Area without damaging the sensitive ecosystem.
More information about the DWP trail system can be found in the 2017 St. Louis River Corridor Trails Plan.
