Skywalk near Essentia reopening Monday

Essentia Health says the skywalk that connects the City of Duluth’s Medical District parking ramp to the hospital’s First Street Clinic building will reopen Monday.

The skywalk has been temporarily closed since July while construction continues on Essentia’s Vision Northland project. The temporary pathway between the ramp and clinic will now close, the hospital says.

“Essentia would like to thank all of our patients and visitors for their understanding while navigating our campus as construction in the area continues,” a press release said.

Vision Northland is a $900 million project that is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2023.
