Public invited to discuss Woodland-Calvary road project

The public is being asked to weigh in on significant road and utility improvements which are planned for portions of Woodland Avenue, Calvary Road and other connecting streets in the Woodland neighborhood of Duluth.

A public meeting Thursday will be used to gather public input and inform property owners in the area about what's being planned for the 2019 project, and how their access and utilities will be affected during the construction period, according to a news release from St. Louis County.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Woodland Community Recreation Center at 3211 Allendale Ave. Representatives of both St. Louis County Public Works and the city of Duluth will present information and answer questions about the project schedule, construction impacts, lane configuration, parking and street lighting.

The project is a joint effort between the county and city, and includes full road and utility reconstruction for Woodland Avenue between Anoka Street and Calvary Road, as well as on Calvary Road from Woodland Avenue to 300 feet west of Austin Street, and Austin Street from the intersection with Woodland Avenue to 400 feet west.

Additionally, Calvary Road will see pavement rehabilitation and water main replacement from Arnold Road to just west of Austin Street where the previously described work ends. Lastly, pavement rehabilitation is planned for Calvary Road between Howard Gnesen and Arnold roads, First Avenue between Calvary and Martin roads, and Arnold Road between Calvary and Martin roads.
