Starting Monday July 17, Third Street will be closed from First Avenue east to Lake Avenue. This will not include the Lake Avenue intersection.

This closure will remain until the larger third street project begins, which is tentatively scheduled for July 31st. Once the larger projects begin, the Lake Avenue intersection will close as well.

The city says this reconditioning project is primarily intended to preserve the life of the existing roadway. This is part of 3rd Street- Recondition from Mesaba Ave to 12st Ave E.

The project work is said to upgrade the curb-to-curb pavement condition while upgrading intersection curb ramps and existing sidewalks to meet the standards of the Americans with disabilities act.

The project is financed by the City of Duluth through federal and Minnesota state aid for streets funds.
