According to a little birdie, a new traffic signal will be installed at the base of the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area, at Grand Avenue (Highway 23) and Warwick Street. The city of Duluth and St. Louis County have secured funding for the right of way acquisition and construction of a new city street, Kayak Bay Road. The future street will create a new four-way intersection on Highway 23. This project will ensure vehicle and pedestrian safety as the planned development and existing recreational amenities increase traffic at the intersection. Total project cost is $354,000.
