City of Duluth provides updates on snow event

Howie /

Press Release, 8 a.m. Tuesday

By Kelli Latuska
Due to continued inclement weather conditions, Duluth Workforce Center/CareerForce will be closed to the public today, with staff working remotely. All other City of Duluth facilities are open to the public today with some staff working remotely.

The National Weather Service in Duluth has updated its forecast package to include up to an additional five inches of snow and freezing rain/ice Tuesday.

Per the City’s snow and ice policy, City of Duluth snow operations crews continue to work to keep our Priority 1 roads clear while continuing to make progress clearing the Priority 2 residential street network. Crews will continue this work until the snowfall ends, with full crews on today until evening, and a smaller overnight crew. Information on our snow and ice policy, please visit

Our thanks to our street maintenance staff for their hard work through this and all snow events. Vehicle travel is not advised during this storm—if you do not have to be on the roads, please do not travel.

Alternate side parking is even-side parking this week. Parking Services staff are actively enforcing alternate side parking rules. Illegally parked vehicles slow our snow plowing efforts and may be ticketed and/or towed at the vehicle owner’s expense.

The City would also like to 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 our residents maintain safe mobility. For snow shoveling info, please visit

As always, the City thanks residents for their patience and understanding as crews work to maintain roads during and after snow events. Please stay safe while traveling.
