Minnesota Slip Bridge in Canal Park to Get Improvements Starting Today

Nick Cooper - TSM Duluth

When people wonder which bridge is the Minnesota Slip Bridge, they usually get the response, “the blue one that is usually broken in Canal Park”.  Hopefully, that well earned reputation is about to change.

The City of Duluth has been working since last year with its consultant engineer, LHB Corp, on a retrofit design to improve operations on the slip bridge. Now, many of the new custom manufactured parts are ready to be installed.

According to the city, the project will replace the existing spool and cable system with a rack and pinion system, which promises to be much more reliable.

The project will start today with the hope of being completed by the first week in June, just in time for peak tourist season.
