Duluth Seeking Additional $100K for Slip Repair

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Duluth, MN – The cost to repair the Minnesota Slip in Canal Park has gone up again.
Contractors say it will now take another $100,000 dollars to get the job done.

This latest request comes after the City council granted another $250,000 dollars to the project in August.
That additional money was needed to help move the Irvin out of the Slip, so repair work could begin.

In addition to sidewalks and boat boarding areas, the contractor says the money is needed to deal with underwater infrastructure that held the Irvin in place.
It’s 135 years old and they say it’s caused many challenges for the project.

“In Duluth, there’s just an unusually ancient piece of infrastructure and there were a lot of failures under the ground,” said Duluth Public Administration Dir., Jim Filby Williams.

The project is expected to be finished this spring.

The Duluth City Council is set to vote on the request on Monday.
