Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The historic Duluth steam plant is getting some much needed repairs.

The plant was built in 1932 and was one of the original structures in Canal Park.

The plant still boasts the original 16 story chimney stack which pierces the Duluth sky line.

A maintenance crew from the International Chimney Corporation arrived on Tuesday to make $340,000 worth of repairs.

"When we get the internal repairs done, there is also some steel work that needs to be done on the duct, and then we are going to be removing the coating that's peeling real bad, and repairing any concrete that's deteriorated and putting a new coating on it," said Jim Angess, a foreman working on the plant.

The crew will be repairing the plant for the next couple of months.
