Downtown Duluth Street And Brick Repairs Expect Delays For The Next Week

Flickr User: Kanthalion

A couple weeks ago, Homie (my husband) and I were cruisin’ along on the motorcycle and decided to venture onto Superior Street, downtown Duluth.  Now, when you’re in a vehicle that is enclosed, you don’t hear, see, or feel what the roadway is doing underneath your tires, unless it’s a pothole you’re navigating.  On a motorcycle, it’s an entirely different story.We watched the loose bricks as they moved up and down from the weight of our bike (and us!), we heard them, as they clanked together and it was certainly gives one an uneasy feeling.  Almost like the road has control of you, rather than you having the control.  That’s why I’m not going to mind the delays, or the need to find an alternative route while crews work for a week on the streets in downtown Duluth.  Here’s what you should know.

Starting today,  street repairs will start at 6th Avenue East and Superior Street and work East to 4th Avenue East closing one block and one lane at a time. The same procedure but in reverse will followed to repair the other side of the street. Motorists should expect temporary delays in their commute as street repairs are conducted and are reminded to pay attention and drive carefully.

They ask for your patience and assistance as they work to improve conditions for motor vehicle traffic.  If we can be patient for one week, the pay off will be good for whatever mode of transportation we use and ultimately enhance the charm of our city for local residents and tourists.
