Duluth Manufacturing Company to Donate Up to $30K to Traverse Trail Project

Created: 02/06/2014 5:52 PM WDIO.com

At an expected 100 miles long, the Duluth Traverse Trail will wind and weave from one end of the city to the other.

To help make that happen, Loll Designs, a Duluth manufacturing company, will match up to $30,000 spent by the organization building it - the Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS).

Business leaders have told Eyewitness News that the project will boost tourism and the economy, while keeping more people in the city.

At a news conference near Haines Road Thursday afternoon, Loll's Greg Benson said that through the donation they're sharing their success with the community.

"It will be the longest intercity trail in the nation. We hope that the money we provide that we provide COGGS will get that done sooner."

The project has received government grants, but COGGS said they'll have more flexibility with how they use the money from Loll, meaning they're not restricted by government spending rules.

The annual COGGS Duluth Traverse Gala is scheduled for March 1, starting at 5 p.m. It's happening at the Greysolon Ballroom. Click here for tickets.
