New Bridge Designed to Ease Marathon Traffic
Scaffold Bridge will Allow Spectators to Cross the Finish Line Area
DULUTH, Minn. – Canal Park is taking shape ahead of this year’s Grandma’s Marathon.
One of the new features in Canal Park is a scaffold bridge just past the finish line.
Organizers say adding the bridge will ease foot traffic around Canal Park while keeping spectators and runners safe.
“It’s for people so they don’t have to walk all the way around,” said Kate Kucisnki, Grandma’s Marathon PR Director. “You used to only be able to at the finish line by the marine museum and the clock tower were the only places you could cross over. Now we have this pedestrian bridge so people can happily go over.”
Organizers add spectators aren’t allowed to cross the street on the race course itself.
