If you travel in the Kenwood Avenue neighborhood in Duluth, get ready for slow moving traffic and some re-routing as the street rehabilitation and construction project begins in that area today.

The City of Duluth says work will be done on Kenwood Avenue at the College Street intersection all week to improve road conditions, better manage traffic congestion and install new traffic control signals.

The following work is scheduled to be done:

  • An asphalt mill and overlay of Kenwood Avenue from approximately 350 feet south to 350 feet north of the College Street Intersection.
  • Curb & gutter and sidewalk replacement on the west side of Kenwood Avenue from approximately 350’ north of the College Street Intersection.
  • The re-alignment of Lyons Street to convert Lyons to a one-way right turn only at the Kenwood Avenue intersection.
  • Signal work to remove the current two stage signal system and convert the system to a standard signal configuration at the Kenwood Avenue and College Street intersection.

While traffic will be slow, College Street and at least one lane of Kenwood Avenue in both directions will remain open to traffic at all times.

Please drive with care and be on the lookout for crews outside working on the project.
