The City of Duluth has announced another project, this one involving the 48th Ave E neighborhood in Lakeside.  This project will impact travel on both roads and a portion of the Lake Walk Trail.

According to the City, this gas main replacement project at 48th Avenue East from Superior Street to Glenwood Street will help reinforce a gas distribution main loop in the Lakeside neighborhood.

Early on, an excavation on the Lake Walk Trail by 48th Avenue East will require the closure of the Trail between 48th and 52nd Ave East.  A recommended detour for trail users is to use the sidewalk of London Road.

Also, along the project route, each street intersection except Superior Street and Glenwood Street is expected to be closed for one or two days during construction. During these interruptions, streets directly impacted will be signed as closed.

This project is expected to last several weeks, with random street closings taking place during working hours only.
