The city of Duluth will hold a virtual public meeting at 4 p.m. Tuesday to discuss plans for the third phase of the Cross City Trail.

City staff will review project information, answer questions and hear feedback from participants about the project at the meeting.

The Cross City Trail Mini-Master Plan, completed in 2017, envisions a paved, separated pathway for non-motorized users connecting the Lakewalk in downtown Duluth with the Munger Trail near the Lake Superior Zoo, a city news release said Friday.

Phases 1, 2 and 4 of the Cross City Trail have now been built between the Lakewalk and Irving Park.

Phase 3 of the project is intended to establish a preferred route for the extension from Irving Park to Green Street. Subsequent work will complete the design and right of way elements to prepare it for construction.

The city secured $600,000 in federal transportation funding to construct the Phase 3 segment in the fiscal year 2023, for which a $210,000 match will be provided by the city.

Parts of the discussion will include setbacks from Keene Creek, crossing Grand Avenue, right of way impacts and cost estimates.
