Mile Creek Road Realignment and Bridge Project

Mile Creek is a Cook County managed road on the tribal lands of the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa that runs through Grand Portage National Monument. To support this effort to protect the historic bridge and create a safer corridor for pedestrian and auto traffic, the National Park Service is providing compliance and monitoring of environmental and cultural resources.

One species of concern in this area is Douglas Hawthorn. While some of these shrubs will be removed, another population will be started nearby.

Construction is on schedule to begin in summer 2023. While underway, traffic will continue on the current roadway. When complete, the new intersection will control traffic for safe pedestrian crossing to the Grand Portage Trail and other features of the Monument. To mitigate the potential for environmental damage, equipment will be washed and sediment from construction kept away from Grand Portage Creek.
