[anvplayer video=”5138184″ station=”998130″]

The City of Duluth held two public meetings on the upcoming 2023 street projects. City staff presented the city sales tax projects, as well as provided a brief overview of the county, state, and federally-funded street projects scheduled for 2023 within the City of Duluth.  The topic of roads in Duluth is nothing new as many have stated how much of a hazard they are to drive. Reconstructions of streets is set to begin June of 2023.

“So in 2023, we’ll be focusing on the Gary New Duluth neighborhood and you’ll see in a further map the Lincoln Park neighborhood for LED, surface replacements. And to give you a good example of kind of what this looks like, there is in the east hillside neighborhood, there is lead service replacements taking place on Eighth Street,” says James Gittemeier Senior Transportation planner.

According to Gittemeier the two major projects in Duluth happening are a recondition of the road on Third Street Masaba to 12th Avenue East. The second is a total street reconstruction of Raleigh St. The hope for these projects is to tackle pavement and utility work, as well as storm repairs and ADA upgrades at intersections. Another goal is to improve conditions for pedestrian facilities and sidewalks.
