Starting Thursday, the city of Duluth is closing a nearly two mile stretch of West Skyline Parkway, to help and encourage citizens to stay active and maintain social distancing.

This new closure is on West Skyline Parkway from Haines Road to Getchell Road, with parking available at either end of the road closure.

“As we continue to identify these areas for citizens to enjoy a walk or bike ride outdoors, we want to remind all users to respect
social distancing guidelines,” said Parks and Recreation Manager Jessica Peterson. “If you notice a parking lot is quite full, that
could be a good signal to consider a different location or a different, less busy time of day.”

In addition to the various road closures and paved trails for bike and ped use, the City also encourages residents to utilize their
neighborhood parks and open space and enjoy a walk through their neighborhoods.

The city had already closed West Skyline Parkway and Hank Jensen Drive from Twin Ponds to Enger Park Golf Course.
