The St. Louis County Public Works Department says that 4th Street in Duluth will be reduced to a single lane from 6th Avenue East to Wallace Avenue beginning Tuesday.

Crews will be conducting soil borings as part of the preliminary design work for the two-mile reconstruction of the Hillside thoroughfare, which is set to begin in 2016. 

The lane closures are expect to continue throughout the week. The county says to minimize travel delays, crew will be focusing on areas with the most traffic during off-peak travel times. 

The reconstruction, a joint project between the City of Duluth and the county, will span nearly two miles. 

Residents voiced concern last month that the project necessitates removing and replanting all the trees along the street.
