The Superior Street Reconstruction Project
Explore the History & Future of Downtown Duluth's Historic Transformation

Downtown Duluth Walking Tour Follows Reconstruction Effort

Downtown Duluth is currently undergoing a historic transformation with the reconstruction of Superior Street. Over the span of three construction seasons (2018 – 2020), sections of Superior Street will be carefully revitalized with improved utilities providing reliable services to current and future generations of customers and beautified streetscapes with inviting common public spaces. The Duluth Experience, in collaboration with Zenity City Press and with funding provided by The City of Duluth, has developed a unique walking tour experience to highlight Superior Street’s rich history as we explore the construction work that will largely define Downtown Duluth’s bright future.

Did We Mention That This Tour Is Free?

With development and implementation support from The City of Duluth, we are happy to offer this experience as a free walking tour for our guests. Pre-registration is required, however, and group size is limited to 10 people. This is a spectacular way to learn more about Downtown Duluth’s history and gain insight on the reconstruction project as it progresses over the coming years.

Superior Street Reconstruction Walking Tour Highlights:

Each year, starting in 2018 and ending in 2020, The Superior Street Reconstruction Walking Tour will follow roadway construction as it progresses across Downtown Duluth. As a result, the tour will change each year as current construction segments are completed and the next stages get underway. The tour is ideal for folks who live and/or work in Downtown Duluth and visitors who are interested in the rich history of this signature street in the heart of Duluth’s commerce and arts districts. You guides will highlight construction progress and delve into some of the stories from Superior Street’s past – including Early Duluth & Superior Street History, The Duluth Bowery & Urban Renewal, and a bunch of great stories about the buildings that give Duluth’s its unique urban character.
