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.
With the Tall Ships Festival in town this weekend, traffic will be greatly increased throughout Canal Park. This will also have an impact on the Minnesota Slip Bridge (the Blue Bridge in Canal Park) and the Aerial Lift Bridge.
For locals, the blue slip bridge near the DECC in the Canal has been a source of frustration. We never knew if it would be operational or if it would be inoperable and stuck in the open position making it useless to foot traffic. The City of Duluth announced in a press release today that they are planning on making changes to the bridge to improve the design.
Have you been following the saga of the blue Minnesota slip bridge in the Canal Park area? It's been under repair for a couple weeks and as of my walk around the DECC last evening, it is still inoperable. At least it waited until the end of the season, we're very near closing the bridge for this year.
We are really, really, REALLY getting close to summer with the announcement that the blue Minnesota Slip Bridge is opening, Friday, May 1! It's official with the posting of the summer hours. That means we can expect more action in the Canal Park area soon!
