|MIC Area Bike Route Planning
The MIC's 1994 Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Bikeways Plan provided the foundation for improving the bicycling environment in the Duluth-Superior metropolitan area. It outlines policies and recommendations for physical facilities, education, and enforcement. 1994 MIC Bikeways Plan|
The subsequent goal of developing a signed, onstreet bike route network in Duluth, Superior, Proctor, Hermantown and outlying townships is being implemented in 3-phases:
In addition, MIC staff is assisting local jurisdictions with grant writing, coalition building and public participation to acquire funding for bicycle projects identified in the Bike Plan and from our recent Bicycle Compatibility Index (BCI) bike route modeling efforts.
|Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Bike Map
In 2011, the 4th edition of the Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Bike Map was completed. Features of the map include its compact design for easy storage, strategic folding and layout for quick and easy access to information, and topographic information to determine which areas may prove the most challenging. We welcome your feedback on how we can continue to improve the map. |

|Munger Trail Extension
|MIC staff is coordinating efforts to identify the alignment and fund a bike route that links the current terminus of the Munger Trail to downtown Duluth and Canal Park.|
The MIC, working with the City of Duluth, has identified a recommended route that would connect the Munger Trail to the Lakewalk. (Munger Trail to Lakewalk Connector Plan) This future trail will be approximately seven miles in length and will provide bicyclists, pedestrians, and in-line skaters access to Spirit Valley Commercial District, Grassy Point Recreation Area, Wade Stadium and the Lincoln Park Business District as it works its way eastward toward Canal Park.
The proposed trail would take trail users past Duluth’s industrial waterfront allowing visitors and locals an opportunity to view working industrial facilities such as a paper mill, rail yards, and an ore dock. The trial connection would also provide a commuting alternative for those who would rather ride or walk to work by connecting Duluth’s west side with the downtown area.
For more information about the MIC's involvement in the Munger Trail Planning Process, contact MIC Principal Planner Andy McDonald by phone at (218) 529-7514 or by e-mail.
