Duluth Winter Watch - Snow Removal

Residents in the northland get to enjoy the best of Duluth: the lure of Lake Superior, interesting topography, easy access to parks and trails, and the beauty of four seasons. For many, the arrival of snow is coupled with the anticipation of a great season for skiing, snowshoeing, the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon or the SnoCross race, not to mention fat tire biking.

For others, snow in varying amounts can pose challenges and inconveniences that accompany living in a four season city built on a hill.  The City of Duluth is continually seeking improvements in how we help residents and visitors safely access and use our various transit systems: streets, sidewalks, alleys and trails.

This 2015-16 winter season, the City is assessing its plowing methods and policies in the best interest of public safety and responsible stewardship of public resources. For more information about snow removal routes, general city policies, and shoveling tips, click on the links to the left.

Call the Snow Event phone line with questions or concerns at (218) 730-5100.

Residents may leave a message for city staff if calling after business hours. Or use the

online form.
