The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), in coordination with the City of Superior, will begin the second phase of the resurfacing project on East 2nd Street on Monday, April 4, 2021. The project will be split into two separate construction seasons; 2020 and 2021.
During construction, US 2-US 53 (East 2nd Street) will remain open to traffic; however, traffic will be limited to at least one lane in each direction at all times, and the speed limit will be reduced from 35 mph to 25 mph. Delays should be expected when traveling through the work zone, especially during commuting hours.
Access will be maintained to properties within the work zone that do not have alternate access available outside the work zone. Access to businesses and residences within the construction area may involve the use of temporary driveways and gravel surfaces.
During the second phase of construction in 2021, work will be similar to what was seen last year during phase one. Work will include rehabilitation of the Nemadji River Bridge and the Bluff Creek Bridge. Curb ramps at pedestrian crossings will also be updated.
