Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A controversial move to keep people on the right path along the Lakewalk in Duluth was at the center of discussion at the city council chambers Monday night.

Some people want improvements because of confusion about where to go when the Lakewalk, going eastward, abruptly ends and turns into a street.

One proposal involves connecting the existing trail to Water Street; a project with a price tag of just over $300,000.

Another would keep the Lakewalk running alongside the lake, behind the Beacon Point Condos and the Ledge townhomes.

Those two together would cost $1.8-million.

Supporters of extending the trail along the lake say the whole point of the Lakewalk is to be able to walk along the lake.

No word on when any action will be taken.
