The proposed project will involve one of the following on each street (see list of streets here):

  • Reclamation and paving – (1) Milling 2-3 inches of bituminous off street. (2) Reclaim the street which involves grinding up remaining pavement and 2-3 inches of subgrade (gravel) and then, (3) paving 3-4 inches of new pavement.
  • Mill and overlay – Milling 1.5-2 inches of paving off street and paving a new 1.5-2 inches layer of paving.

In addition to the street work, there will be some stormwater infrastructure repairs as well as ADA upgrades where possible, mostly at pedestrian ramps at intersections. Some residential and business driveways will require concrete work. Notice will be given to individual residents when access will be limited, usually about a week, by the contractor. The project should not affect mail delivery or garbage pickup schedules. It is advisable to put your house number on your garbage cans in case they get moved so we can get them back to you. Streets will be temporarily posted “No Parking” on multiple occasions during the project. Signs will be removed when you can park and reposted when necessary, such as for milling and then again for paving.
The City of Duluth’s Streets Sales tax will fund these projects and there will be no assessments for the projects to property owners.
