Public Works

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:

  • Accountability
  • 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


Dumpsters - Extended Hours:

Dumpsters will be open for storm clean-up September 12 - September 15 from 12:00 - 7:00 p.m.  This Saturday, September 16th dumpsters will be open from 8:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Road Assessments:

Engineers will be doing road assessments on River Summit Drive, Thornbrooke Place, and Thornbrooke Court.  Please drive carefully on these streets, watching out for workers during the week of September 11th. 

Full Depth Reclamation of Chattahoochee Drive:

Baldwin Paving was the selected contractor for this project.  Work is expected to start in early September, residents will be alerted once a specific date is set.  Work should take no more than 10 days, 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.

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: 

      Ardemore Court                          Bryn Mawr Court
      Casey Glen Court                       Chaderton Court
