Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.COM)---Motorists can now drive up to Chester Park after access was limited for several months following June's historic floods.

Reconstruction of washed out portions of Chester Park Drive ended this week.

The heavy rain caused mudslides that took out portions of the road shoulder.

Crews have been working since August to stabilize the hillside and volunteers have cleaned up debris and fallen trees and flood damaged trails.
