Pier B Resort is being built next to Bayfront Park on the Duluth Waterfront. I happened to be in Bayfront Park early in the morning and took a few photos of the activity.


I was particularly interested in what they were doing at the boat slip. The John R. Asher was moving barges of dredged material over to the slip and a crane was dumping the material into the slip. At the time I couldn’t figure out what they were doing but found out later that the soil under the slip is contaminated so they are putting dredged material from the harbor in the slip to provide a seal the contaminated material.
