We’re going to level with you here. Our communications team is struggling to find the right words to break the news, so we’re just going to rip off the band-aid and lay it all out there; the Main Street closure has been extended through at least the end of July.
We know this can be frustrating, so to lighten the mood, we invite you to share with us your favorite (family-friendly) meme below, construction related or not. Couldn’t we all use a good laugh?
While updating the stormwater infrastructure, crews found other unmarked utilities that will now require additional care, specialized equipment and further planning and design in the field. You never know what “fun” surprises you may encounter when digging through 150 years of developments, right?
The roadway will continue to be blocked at the intersection of West Lawrenceville Street and Main Street down to the Main Street entrance to City Hall. The construction zone (Red Zone) will temporarily include the drive aisle that leads from Main Street to the rear parking lot behind Pure/Red Clay/Mathias building, it will cross Main Street and connect to the paver lot construction zone.
The entire Red Zone will be OFF LIMITS TO PEDESTRIANS for safety reasons.
We will continue to make the most of these growing pains by providing in-street seating and occasional live music during the road closure. You know, all those fun community vibes that Duluth is known for!
Be assured that during the closure, full pedestrian access to Town Green and all Downtown businesses will still be available. Please refer to the Yellow Pedestrian Zones on the map that highlights existing paths to Town Green.
