Busy Stretch of Duluth Road Reopens Following Construction

DULUTH, Minn. – A busy stretch of road closed for construction is now back open to drivers.

The 21st Ave. E. and 4th St. intersection is back open for motorists.

The intersection has been closed for a month to work on water mains, gas lines, traffic signals and retaining walls.

This is all part of the 4th Street project in Duluth.

“There’s a brand new traffic signal with extra ADA push buttons and new cameras and new signal cabinets and the whole intersection is revamped and should be good for the motorists and pedestrians using the intersection,” said Steve Krasaway, Resident Engineer for St. Louis County.

The workers are hoping to be paving on 4th St. between 19th Ave. E. and 23rd Ave. E. within the next few weeks and have that section open in mid-October.

An estimated 17,000 vehicles travel on 21st Ave. E. each day.
