The city of Duluth announced that 16.8 miles of roads will be improved in 2022.

It's all part of the Sales Tax Street Improvement Program - a half percent sales tax allocated soley to improve and maintain roads in Duluth.

According to Mayor Emily Larson this is the single largest number of miles in one construction season in the city's recent history.

This is a large community accomplishment for a number of reasons and city officials are thrilled with the improvement in funding.

"We've waited many years to have a stable consistent funding source for our streets," Said Cindy Voigt, Duluth city engineer. "Myself, staff, street maintenance and public works are so excited to actually have money to respond to the residents needs and their requests for better roads."

City representatives say the chosen areas are based on utility repairs, lead service work, resident input and by county.
