Experimental Bike Lane Opens in Downtown Duluth

DULUTH, Minn. —

The City of Duluth is experimenting with a bike lane, downtown on Michigan Street.

The protected bike lane is part of a demonstration by the Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Interstate Council.

The path has two lanes and runs three blocks on Michigan Street near the Transportation Depot.

It prevents parking on the lower side of the street.

The bike lane will stay open for one month, with a survey to follow to gather feedback.

The project was funded through Center for Prevention, from Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota.
