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



Holiday Calendar:

Public Works will be closed on December 12 from 11:30 - 1:30 for a City-wide meeting.  Also, we will be closed Monday & Tuesday, December 25, 26 and January 1 for the holidays.

Sidney Lanier Blvd:

Road work will begin on Sidney Lanier Blvd. Friday, December 15.  Please use caution when travelling in this area.  The Contractor for this project is CW Matthews. 

UPDATE:  CW Matthews began work on this project last week.  Unfortunately because of inclement weather, work has stopped.  Due to weather conditions and the holidays, the Contractor will continue work after the first of the year.  We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

South Street:

City Contractors will be visiting certain residents on South Street beginning the week of December 25.  A large tree must be removed and several homes will be affected during this project.  Electricity will be temporarily cut off for this tree removal.  The City's Contractor is 404-Cut-Tree. 

The tree will be removed after the holidays in early January.  All homeowners will be required to sign a release allowing the electricity to be turned off and for Contractors to be able to work near their property. 

If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at 770 476-2454.

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:

Full depth reclamation on this road is complete.  The City is studying traffic patterns to determine the final lane layout at Peachtree Industrial Blvd. The study should be complete in the next few weeks to determine the lane layout.  Final striping will be the last step. 

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
      Howell Springs Drive                 Irvindale Road                  
      Loring Lane                               Swathmore Lane              
      Wynnewood Lane
