Stewart Creek Railroad Bridge Repairs Completed
The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation celebrated a big win with the completion of the Stewart Creek Railroad Bridge.
The bridge connects the Duluth Traverse and Superior Hiking Trail. Repairs included replacing old decking, repairing flood-damaged concrete abutments and installed cable railings for protection.
The 340-foot long bridge, built in 1911 and abandoned in 1984, spans the Stewart Creek and is ready for a beautiful fall walk. Access to the bridge can be found from Gogebic St. (accessible from Grand Ave then to Grand Place) and walk 1/4 mile
to the Stewart Creek Railroad Bridge.
The project was funded in part by a $200,000 Regional Trail Program grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and $330,000 of half and half tourism tax funds.
