City invites the public to attend 2022 Street Preservation Project public meetings
[Duluth, MN] Street construction season is just around the corner! The City of Duluth will be holding two public information meetings to share the planned 2022 street preservation project. The meetings will be held virtually on Wednesday, April 6, from noon – 1 p.m. and 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. This project includes approximately 25 different street segments that will be improved this year across the city.
In 2017, a majority of Duluth residents voted to approve a ½ percent sales tax referendum that would fund a Street Improvement Program. The state legislature authorized the City to implement the tax in 2019, and the program started in 2020. To date, 23.6 miles of roads have been improved as a part of this program. The Street Improvement Program has funded these projects.
The street projects will involve resurfacing and storm repairs and ADA upgrades at intersections. The projects should be able to maintain local access to homes and businesses; if not, temporary detours will be set up. Some residential and business driveways will require concrete work, and notice will be given to individual residents when access will be limited. The projects should not affect mail delivery or garbage pickup.
