Temporary fix planned for Duluth’s Superior Street

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Duluth officials plan a temporary fix for part of the city’s Superior Street.

Workers will tackle a five-block stretch, one block at a time. Traffic will be detoured during the work, expected to wrap up by June 14.

City workers will dig up the bricks that now pave Superior Street’s traffic lanes and replace them with asphalt. Most of the current brickwork in downtown Duluth was installed in the 1980s.

Meanwhile, Mayor Don Ness says the city will work with people who use downtown Duluth to plan a comprehensive project that will involve replacing not only the street’s paving but many of the aging pipes that run below it.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/119xdGt) reports Ness says Duluth will tackle the larger job on Superior Street in 2015 or 2016.
