The maps are from Matt Bolf, project manager for Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc., the firm hired by the city to sort this out.
Several possible routes are shown on the maps. Bolf said these routes are being reviewed and studied.
“We are getting public input on all of them at this time, along with starting to meet with landowners to find out what routes are possible,” he said.
Kimberly Sannes is the city of Duluth’s project engineer in charge of the effort.
The trail is intended for multi-purpose use and will accommodate pedestrians, skaters, bikers and other non-motorized modes of transit. It’s expected to take about five years to make the whole thing a reality, but the section from the Lake Superior Zoo area to the Bong Bridge could be done by 2011.
