A nearly $700,000 grant for Skyline Parkway bridge improvements is on the Duluth City Council's docket for approval.

The City Council is scheduled to vote Monday on whether to accept the grant from the Minnesota state transportation fund. 

The bridge has been under construction since late June to repair flood damage from 2012. 

The grant will help make stone masonry and concrete retaining walls possible for the bridge that runs from Skyline Parkway to Kent Road in East Duluth. 

Skyline Parkway and access to Chester Bowl from the east will be closed until August 11, while park access from the west will be closed until November.
