Essentia skywalk to close temporarily
The skyway connecting the city parking lot to Essentia's campus will close on Wednesday. It is expected to reopen in the fall.
DULUTH — Essentia Health will temporarily close its skywalk that connects the city parking ramp to the health care facility's campus, Essentia announced Friday. The closure will begin Wednesday.
The closure is part of Essentia's Vision Northland construction project for its new hospital. Visitors who use the parking lot on First Street between Third and Fourth avenues east will no longer be able to get to Essentia's medical campus through the skywalk, and will instead use a covered, handicap-accessible pathway.
Construction on the skywalk is expected to be complete by late fall.
