A new addition to Duluth's Lakewalk could cause some traffic delays for drivers on Highway 61 and Scenic 61.
The city of Duluth said work on a pedestrian tunnel that will allow users to cross the highway happens this spring. Starting Monday, Congdon Boulevard will be closed north of 61st Avenue East.
Highway 61 and Scenic 61 traffic will be detoured to East Superior Street and 60th Avenue East, the city said. A traffic signal will be placed at that intersection.
The city said construction on the tunnel will be completed and the detour will be removed on June 19.
