Duluth's final Superior Street closure begins
The reconstruction project began in 2018.
The final portion of Duluth's Superior Street reconstruction project has begun.
The section between Third and Fourth avenues east closed Tuesday until September, according to a news release from the city of Duluth.
The Third Avenue East intersection will remain open, as will sidewalks and access to businesses on that block.
This phase of the construction involves vault work, installation of concrete roadways, sidewalks and other amenities.
The road and sidewalk on the currently closed block have been covered in temporary asphalt since 2019, after crews worked on the section between Lake and Fourth avenues east.
The Superior Street reconstruction project began in 2018 and includes the stretch between Seventh Avenue West and Fourth Avenue East. The last Superior Street closure was this spring on the section between First and Third avenues west.
