Duluth City Councilor Jeff Anderson wants the city administration to consider turning three one-way avenues downtown into two-ways.

The council unanimously passed Anderson's resolution Monday, requesting that the city administration study the feasibility of making First, Second and Third avenues west into two-way roads. Approximately 13 blocks of road will be evaluated.

Anderson said he prefers two-way streets in the area because it makes the downtown easier to navigate and discourages speeding.

"I would argue two-way streets help build neighborhoods," he said.

Councilor Dan Hartman said he was pleased to co-sponsor a resolution that would reduce the confusion of one-way streets both for residents and visitors.

The resolution passed Monday will have no immediate impact on the flow of traffic on the affected roadways. It simply asks that the city consider converting them to two-way operation.
