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.
LMIG 2019 Mill, Patch, and Resurfacing: - Update June 26, 2020
Poor soil conditions have also been encountered on Romulus Drive and Bromley Rowe. We hope to start additional repairs on Romulus Drive the week of July 29, weather permitting and portions of Romulus will be closed to through traffic. Repair schedules for Bromley Rowe have not been set yet.
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.
During the Council Meeting of January 13, 2020, the bid was awarded to Baldwin Paving, Inc. A pre-bid meeting has been held and weather permitting resurfacing should start in the next couple of weeks - mid-March.
All streets in the Base Bid and Alternate Bid were funded.
Signage will be placed to alert residents prior to any paving. It is expected that resurfacing of Brock Road and patching of Main Street will be completed during Spring Break, this is weather dependent. As always, please slow down in work zones and pay attention to any workers directing traffic. Please also consider alternate routes when available. We appreciate your patience.
LMIG 2020 Full Depth Reclamation Project - Update: June 26, 2020

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.

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).
Georgia Department of Transportation maintained roads:
Buford Highway (aka SR 23)
Highway 120 (aka SR 120, Abbotts Bridge Road, Duluth Highway)
