City of Duluth contractors will begin work on the St. Andrews Bridge replacement project on Monday, July 8. During the project period, St. Andrews Street will be closed to traffic between Columbus Avenue and Harvard Avenue at the Tischer Creek Crossing. However, driveway access to adjacent homes will be maintained.

The St. Andrews Street Bridge replacement project will replace a triple-barrel steel culvert crossing St. Andrews Street at Tischer Creek with a new pre-cast concrete single-barrel culvert and roadway. Northland Constructors of Duluth will perform the construction, which will be overseen by LHB, Inc. Construction is anticipated to continue through September. State Local Bridge Replacement Program funds and local City funds finance this project.

Third Street Reconditioning Project traffic changes expected on July 1

The City of Duluth is completing work on the upper side of Third Street on schedule and will begin work on the lower side on Monday, July 1. The left lane of Third Street will be closed between 12th Avenue E and Mesaba Avenue with traffic using the newly-paved right lane.

Parking will not be allowed within the construction limits due to the narrow available lane. Avenues may be closed as required to safely complete the work within the intersections. The remaining work on the Third Street Reconditioning Project consists of concrete pavement repairs, bituminous mill and overlay, ADA intersection improvements, and pavement markings. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of September.

Sundby Road to temporarily close to the public

Beginning Monday, July 1, a contractor will temporarily close Sundby Road to traffic between Page Street and Miller Creek Drive. The closure will allow for the installation of utilities and pavement restoration for a commercial construction project. Sundby Road will be open to local traffic from Haines Road to Miller Creek Drive. Page Street will remain accessible at all times. The temporary closure is anticipated to last three to four weeks. Drivers needing to detour from the affected area should use Maple Grove Road, US Highway 53, and Haines Road to avoid the construction. – City of Duluth press releases
