Get ready Lincoln Park, your sewers are about to be cleared. Yay!  However, that means you need to be aware of road closures and parking restrictions. It should only be for a week, but please choose an alternate route to allow workers ample time and space to get the job done.

Portions of West First Street and North 23rd Avenue West in Duluth will be closed next week beginning Monday, July 8th as Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) and the City of Duluth each clear debris obstructing sanitary sewers in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Road closures are expected to last approximately one week and are as follows:

  •     First Street closed between 22nd and 23rd Avenues West
  •     North 23rd Avenue West closed between the Superior Street and First Street Alleys

The road closures will last approximately one week. During the road closures, parking will not be permitted on North 23rd Avenue West between the Superior Street alley and First Street.

These road closures are necessary to allow WLSSD and the City of Duluth to each remove debris that has accumulated in the City’s and WLSSD’s sewer lines. Temporary sewer pipelines will be in place to provide uninterrupted sewer service during the debris-removal project.

Residents and businesses will be allowed access to their properties throughout the duration of the closure via nearby alleys. No through traffic will be allowed on the affected roads. Drivers in the area are advised to seek alternate routes and all travelers in the area are advised to use caution, slow down and obey signage in the work area.

For more information contact Karen L. Anderson, Director of Community Relations WLSSD at 218-740-4776 or Howard Jacobson, City of Duluth Public Works at 218-730-4061.
