All of the built up sand, dirt and little pieces of trash accumulated over the winter on Duluth streets are finally getting cleaned up.

Street sweeping is beginning downtown and along Duluth's Hillside neighborhood. 

Road crews will focus first on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Streets from Mesaba Avenue to 21st Avenue East - and on-street parking will be limited in that area in the next few days.

Work begins Thursday morning at 7 a.m.
