Superior Street Reconstruction Project - Planning & Preliminary Design Phase

Superior Street Header2


The City of Duluth is planning to reconstruct Superior Street, including all underground utilities, from 6th Avenue W to 4th Avenue E. The existing brick pavers, installed over 20 years ago, are at the end of their lifespan. In 2013, portions of the bricks were removed and replaced with asphalt due to the extent of deterioration. This temporary solution was initiated with the understanding that a long-term design process would be undertaken. As the existing water and sewer lines were first installed in the 1880s and 1890s, they will also be replaced during the street reconstruction.

The Planning and Preliminary Design Phase will be completed by the end of 2015, with Final Design being conducted in 2016-2017. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 or 2018.
