Duluth prepares for utility work, downtown detours
Traffic will be rerouted.
DULUTH — Starting Monday, Michigan Street will be closed to traffic from First Avenue West to Lake Avenue for utility work, to be followed by resurfacing.
The following week, June 20, Third Avenue East will be closed between Michigan and Superior streets. Sidewalks may be closed and/or available for only limited foot traffic on the 100 and 200 blocks of East Michigan Street.
The closures will allow the city to replace gas and water mains. Minnesota Power also will take the opportunity to expand electrical duct bank capacities in the area.
An informational meeting to discuss the project is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday in the Hodnik Hall Conference Room of the Minnesota Power building, 30 W. Superior St.
Additional questions may be directed to the city's engineering staff at 218-730-5200.
