Two-Year Project On Woodland Avenue Begins May 20


It’s an age-old adage but one that’s usually true:  “It’ll be nice when it’s done”.  The St. Louis County Public Works Department is alerting drivers that a two-year road construction project to rebuild a one-mile stretch of Woodland Avenue will get underway on Monday, May 20.  Drivers can anticipate encountering road closures and detours during the work.

The scope of the project will evolve as the construction progresses.  Initial work will focus on Woodland Avenue between Anoka Street and Red Wing Street.  Somewhere in mid-July – depending on the weather and other factors – the work will expand north to the intersection with Calvary Road and west on Calvary Road.

The St. Louis County Highway Department will have detours clearly marked.  In addition, Duluth Transit (DTA) buses will also be affected during the project, with bus stops clearly marked.

St. Louis County has partnered with the City of Duluth for this project.  The city will install new water and sewer lines and the county is responsible for reconstructing the roadway.  Along the way, new sidewalks and bike lakes will be implemented, along with improved lighting and other safety improvements.  Total cost is estimated at $11.5 million.

Work is expected to wrap up for the season near the end of October, restarting again in the spring for Year Two.  To get more details, click here to visit the project page.
