Please be aware of the Superior Street closure...

Due to the DTA bus accident outside of the LASNEM Duluth office in the Ordean Building, there is no Superior Street access by foot or vehicle between 4th Ave. W and 6th Ave. W. If you need to access the Ordean Building, you will need to get in on the Michigan Street level.

Our thoughts are with the victims, families, and emergency response crews.
