Howie /

UPDATED, 6:45 p.m. Sunday

Due to snow conditions, some City of Duluth facilities will be closed to the public Monday. Duluth Workforce Development Center will be closed, with staff working remotely during the storm Monday. All Duluth Public Library facilities will also be closed. Duluth City Hall, however, will be open to the public, but with some staff working remotely. Additionally, all Duluth Parks and Recreation programs tomorrow are cancelled. Monday’s City Council meeting is expected to continue as scheduled.

City of Duluth snow operations day shift crews are completing their shift and will be off until 2 AM for a well-deserved rest. The city will still have a small number of crews on duty to continue clearing Priority 1 streets into the late-night hours and to keep main roads open for emergency vehicles. Snow operations staff will be back at full at 2 AM to continue clearing snow on Priority 1/mains and Priority 2/residentials. If you do not have to be on the roads, please refrain from traveling.

The city also remind residents and businesses to lend a helping hand to their neighbors in need as they remove snow from their sidewalks. Safe sidewalk access is crucial to pedestrians, folks pushing strollers, and people using wheelchairs and mobility devices as they move about to errands, appointments, and the like. Removal of sidewalk snow within 24 hours of a snow event’s end helps residents maintain safe mobility. For snow shoveling info, please visit


The National Weather Service is forecasting a winter storm in Duluth, with a forecasted 12” or more to fall between Sunday and Tuesday. Snowfall has begun, but is light at this early stage.

City of Duluth snow operations crews are out and will be running full operations on Priority 1 streets according to its snow and ice control policy until 6:30 p.m. today, at which time most staff will take a well-deserved rest. The city will still have a small number of crews on duty to continue the work into the late-night hours, and will have a full crew again in the early morning.

Residents can do their part in helping with street maintenance operations by remembering to move their cars today between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. from to the odd side to the even side of the road. For information about alternate side parking, please visit Illegally parked cars can hamper snow plowing efforts considerably, as snowplowing equipment often has difficulty passing illegally parked vehicles on residential streets, so moving your vehicle in the changeover window is critical.
