Description:

Join us on August 18, 2022, for this Coastal Hazards of Superior (CHAOS) field trip where we will be visiting a public waterfront park where a project is underway to address storm damage through improvements to the shoreline and updates to the existing infrastructure. You can view more about the plans to update Brighton Beach on pages 58-70 of the Duluth Lakewalk Renewal and Brighton Beach Resiliency plan.

We will meet at 10:00 a.m. at the scenic viewpoint pavilion at the far west end of the park. Parking will be available across the street at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency lab at 6201 Congdon Blvd, Duluth, Minnesota 55804. On the field trip, we will spend about two hours at Brighton Beach where we will hear from planners and staff from the City of Duluth who will discuss specific plans for the road relocation and shoreline improvements at the project site.
