Street Maintenance

The Public Works Department Street Division is responsible for maintenance to all City streets, from repairing potholes, sink-holes and sidewalks to maintaining and replacing signs, to clearing after storms.

Street Assessments:

City Contractors will be doing street assessments January 3-5. 

LMIG 2019 Mill, Patch, and  Resurfacing:

 LMIG grant funds are generated from the state motor fuel tax which is set each year by the Georgia General Assembly.  The grant is for road improvement projects such as street resurfacing and requires 30% matching funds.  The matching funds will come from SPLOST Transportation funds.  SPLOST is the special purpose local option sales tax that is levied by the county to fund projects like transportation, parks, libraries, road maintenance, parking, etc. 

Seven bids were received on December 19, and are being evaluated at this time.  A bid award will be requesed at the January 13, 2020 Council meeting.  If approved, work will begin in February or March, depending on the weather.  There are two project lists included in the bid, the base bid and the alternate project.  

Base Bid - Streets confirmed to be resurfaced in early 2020:

Benthollow Lane                                                                   Benthollow Way

Residents of any roads selected for paving will be alerted beforehand and no work will be done during the holidays.  For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at 770 476-2454.  

Dead Animal Removal:

The Public Works Department can ONLY report dead animals on the roadside to Gwinnett County.  We do NOT have the proper equipment or an incinerator to handle this task.  The County follows a schedule for pick-up and consequently, animals may stay for a few days before they are removed.  Thanks for your patience.

Prior to working within the City's right-of-way, a permit is required. Follow the links below for more information on how to obtain a right-of-way permit. Right of Way Registration
Right of Way Ordinance

City Maintained Streets:

Did you know that not all streets within the City are owned and maintained by Duluth? Some streets within the City are privately owned or maintained by either Gwinnett County or the Georgia Dept. of Transportation (GA DOT).  For services on those streets, please contact the appropriate agency.

Full Depth Reclamation:

Full Depth Reclamation is a process that reclaims the entire asphalt surface of the existing roadway and part of the underlying base.  This material is then crushed, pulverized, blended and replaced to make a stabilized road bed, which is then re-paved with new asphalt, essentially creating a brand new road.  This project is partially funded by the LMIG (Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant) Funds, a program funded by the Georgia Motor Fuel Tax and allocated through the Georgia Department of Transportation.  The remaining funds come from SPLOST (the penny sales tax).
