Work Begins to Put Up New Sprint Tower in Chester Bowl
New Sprint Tower Goes Up in Duluth's Chester Bowl
The City of Duluth is informing the public about an upcoming project involving the replacement of a Sprint telecommunications pole with a new permanent mono-pine tower in Chester Bowl Park on the upper hillside.
The project is scheduled to start April 13 and is expected to be completed by June 1, 2015.
The project will require the placement of heavy equipment near the western trails in Chester Bowl Park, located on the upper hillside.
The project area will be enclosed in orange fencing and heavy equipment will be in use.
Park users are asked to keep a distance from the work area.
The City of Duluth is committed to ensuring the preservation and protection of our treasured parks and recreation lands.
The City will ensure that any disturbance to the soil and plantings as a result of this project will be minimized to the extent possible and the impacted surroundings are restored to their original state, to the extent possible.
Access to most park trails will be maintained though some trails in the project area may become inaccessible.
All trails in the project area are expected to be fully opened for users in mid-June following completion of the project.
The City will make every effort to keep the public informed of trail impacts throughout the project.
