Duluth residents push to close section of Skyline Parkway after fatalities

DULUTH - Duluthians are calling on the city to permanently close to vehicles a popular section of the famed Skyline Parkway after two fatalities along the boulevard this month.

The City Council heard from parkway neighbors and families of the deceased Monday night. They shared stories of speeding drivers and dangerous conditions along the 28-mile roadway that overlooks the length of the city, snaking high above the St. Louis River and Lake Superior.

Kenneth Bickel, 70, died last week after being struck by a car when he was walking on a section of the parkway near Enger Park. Logan Woock, 26, died earlier this month after rolling his car in the same vicinity.
