Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Walkers strolling on the Lakewalk will be forced to take a detour next week.

City workers will be installing a force main under the walkway between 47th Ave. E. and McCulloch St. in the Lakeside neighborhood.

The work is a part of the Lift Station No. 45 Pumping and Force Main Improvements project to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows.

The detour will begin Feb. 6th and last until Feb. 17th.

Walkers will turn south at 45th Ave. E. down to London Rd. and reconnect to the Lakewalk at 51st Ave. E.

Cyclists are asked to walk their bikes for the six blocks along London Rd.
