The city of Duluth will have to wait until next week to see if the storm did any new damage to the Lakewalk and other areas.

Since the snow lingered all through the day Friday, it continued to coat the areas close to the lake. Crews attempted to survey the Lakewalk and other places that have sustained damage in the past. But it was inconclusive.

When WDIO went down to the section near Fitger's, it appeared the waves pushed a huge wall of ice into the shore, and which could have made it harder for the pounding waves to do damage.

Mike LeBeau, Construction Projects Supervisor, said, "The ice that blew into the area seems to have protected the Lakewalk from more damage and once the snow and ice melts, City staff will be in a better position to assess what, if any, damage has occurred."

Brighton Beach remains closed as well.
