DULUTH, MN– Senator and U.S. Presidential Candidate Amy Klobuchar will visit Duluth Thursday, touring clean-up efforts at the Minnesota Slip.
Klobuchar, the vice-chair of the U.S. Senate’s Great Lakes Task Force, will also highlight federal funding dedicated toward freshwater ecosystems and redeveloping waterfront communities like Duluth.
City of Duluth crews began the final phase of the seawall restoration project in the Minnesota Slip on Monday.
City officials plan to ask the Duluth City Council for an additional $700,000 to complete the project, which would bring the total cost to $7.9 million.
According to her office, Klobuchar, a democrat, will be joined by Duluth Mayor Emily Larson along with representatives from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Environmental Protection Agency, and Visit Duluth.
