A Duluth icon will soon be on the move; the historic Viking ship that spent years in Leif Erickson Park will be moved to the intersection of 10th Avenue East where Superior Street and London Road meet. 

On Monday, the Duluth City Council agreed to a 99-year lease with the Minnesota Department of Transportation for the piece of property located on the 900 block of East Superior Street. 

The plan calls for a new wood pavilion to be built to protect the ship from the weather and vandalism, which officials say were both problems at the previous location.
