Duluth plans $38 million in upgrades to neighborhood street

November 14, 2023

The city of Duluth, Minnesota, is moving forward with a $38 million project that will upgrade nearly 2 miles of a neighborhood street with new roadwork, accessibility options, utilities and green infrastructure. The project received a $25 million Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant in 2022. RAISE grants are part of a federal program to directly fund infrastructure projects for any public entity, including municipalities, counties and port authorities.

The complete reconstruction includes entirely replacing the street’s roadway and utilities. This includes replacing underground water, sewer and stormwater pipes. Fiber optics will be installed for a future broadband corridor, and street lighting will be replaced and improved.

Amenities for non-motorized travelers are included in the plan, including ADA-compliance upgrades for the sidewalks. The design also incorporates protected bike lanes and bike parking.

Green infrastructure, such as electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, will be built along the street alongside additional vehicle parking spaces. The project is currently in the design phase. Construction will begin in 2026.
