As we broadcast from our studio on Superior Street, we can see the Superior Street reconstruction project is moving along.  The City of Duluth has offered an official update.

One of the big projects complete last week involved workers making connections from the old storm sewer system to the new storm sewer system in 1st Avenue West.

According to the City of Duluth, residents can expect the following between July 8 and July 14:

  • Access to businesses and residences will remain open.
  • Bricks, pavement and ledge rock will continue to be removed throughout the project zone.
  • Crews will pour roadway and sidewalk on the upper side of Lake Avenue as well as bridge approach panel on the south side.
  • Structural work on vaults will continue.
  • Permanent water and storm sewer tie-ins will begin between from 1st Avenue West and 2nd Avenue West.
