Final Designs of Superior Street To Be Released in 3D

The Project Will Be Pushed Back

The Superior Street reconstruction project is on a temporary hold, after Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton announced there will be no special legislative session this year.

The city of Duluth is still holding an open house on Tuesday, and invites community members to come and learn about the future of superior street.

Duluth is planning to reconstruct almost 11 blocks of superior street, including underground utilities.

Though the project is on a hold, the city is hosting a meeting where they will unveil 3D images of what the road will look like

“What this really does is just makes it pretty much true to life, a real rendering where they can look in, be inside of it, look around, zoom in on things and see the environment like it’ll really appear,” said Brad Scott, a Civil Engineer and Project Manager with LHB.

Tuesday will be the 8th public meeting on the project. Attendees will have the chance to get a detailed view of the final design of what Superior Street will look like, in 3D, created by LHB Corporations in Duluth.

“The street won’t have bricks, it’ll be a new concrete paving, and there will be colored concrete and different surface treatment that’ll break the street up in to different zones,” describes Scott.

Some of the attendees will also go home with google cardboard technology viewers, that will give people a 360 degree view of the future superior street.

“It’s an opportunity for them to really step in to the finished space and walk around and see the context of the building facades and the canopies and where the light poles are, relative to the skywalk,” said Daniel J. Stine, BIM Administrator, at LHB.

The open house starts at 4:30 pm on Tuesday, and will be held at the Radisson Hotel Downtown.
