City, state tackle I-35 flooding issues in downtown Duluth

The city and state will implement Plan A next week in a combined effort to address the beach rock that is clogging drain pipes and causing flooding and periodic lane closures on Interstate 35 through downtown Duluth. “We all agree this is a great first-time-around attempt at fixing this,” said Tom Johnson, a senior engineer with Duluth public works and utilities. “If this doesn’t work we’ll keep exploring options.” Three major drain pipes that run under the freeway between Second and Third avenues east and empty into Lake Superior have become increasingly clogged and problematic.
