The City of Duluth Public Works Department will strive to be known as a leader in the delivery of quality services. It is our goal to be recognized for our responsiveness, reliability, efficiency in the use of fiscal resources, and the integrity that serves as the foundation of every job we do.
We believe that our employees are our most valuable resource; it is through their dedication that we will be successful.
Our Core Values Are:
- Delivery on commitments
- Treat others as we wish to be treated
- To be part of the solution, not part of the problem
The Public Works Department has four divisions:
- Building Maintenance (includes the Town Green and Fountain)
- Fleet Maintenance
- Right of way/Landscape Maintenance
- Street Maintenance (including sidewalks and signs)
In addition, we are responsible for construction and placement of Veterans Markers & Flags twice per year, Holiday Decorations and support at all City events.
- To report street light outages: Check for a pole number and call GA Power at 888 891-0938 or Jackson EMC at 1-800 462-3691
Veteran Markers Moving:
It has become increasingly dangerous for our employees to place markers on SR120 and Pleasant Hill Road. Because of this danger, all markers on SR 120 and Pleasant Hill Road will be moved to other locations over the next 12 months. Please be understanding that the City places safety for its employees first. We will do our best to contact everyone who is affected by a marker being moved.
The first group of markers to be moved will be those on SR 120 from the Methodist Church west to SR 23. Those markers will be placed on SR 23, north of Thompson Street.
Markers on Pleasant Hill Road west, from McClure Bridge Road to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard will be moved to SR 23, just north of Pleasant Hill Road.
Full Depth Reclamation of Chattahoochee Drive:
Baldwin Paving was the selected contractor for this project. Work should begin the week of October 30 and be complete within a few weeks, weather permitting. Residents should be aware, Full Depth Reclamation is an invasive process; machines are large and noisy, the road will be bumpy and there will be delays. Residents may want to use an alternate exit during the work if possible. Please slow in these work zones.
Intersection Improvements Chattahoochee Drive and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard happening at same time as Full Depth Reclamation:
Minor widening and the addition of a turn lane on Chattahoochee Drive at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard will take place during the Full Depth Reclamation Project. Final utility adjustments should be completed within the next week (October 23) with the Full Depth Project starting shortly thereafter.
2017 LMIG (Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant) Resurfacing Program

October 23 - 25 - Bridlewood Drive

Weather or other factors may change this schedule, updates will be posted here. Please slow down and stay alert while traveling in work zones.
East Whippoorwill Drive Patching:
Sections of East Whippoorwill Drive will receive patching this year. Due to numerous specialty items and additional work required for this project, it will be bid separately. Further updates will be posted here.
Gas Line Replacement:
Atlanta Gas Light (AGL) has finished replacing gas lines in the Norman Downes neighborhood. They will begin work in another area at this time. This project will take several weeks, depending on the weather. Residents should receive information posted on door hangers. AGL will repair any damage to yards and streets that are affected. Old lines are being abandoned and phased out for new lines to provide more dependable, long-term service. The City is working with AGL and will monitor the work to ensure any affected roads are repaired correctly.
AGL will be working on gas line replacement for the following streets next:
Ardmore Court Bryn Mawr Court
Casey Glen Court Chaderton Court
Courtenay Court Crestmoor Court
Gladwyn Court Glenaire Court
Glentree Court Haverford Court
Heathmoor Court Howell Meadow Drive
