Sanitary sewer break forces road closure by Blatnik Bridge
A sanitary sewer break along Highway 53 in Superior’s north end will close down the road at noon today, according to a release from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Due to the break near the on ramp to the Blatnik Bridge, the city’s environmental services division of public works requested the road closure to allow for repairs. The detour will prevent access to the bridge via North Third Street.
Beginning at noon today, southbound traffic on Highway 53 will need to use Tower Avenue southbound from North Third Street to Belknap Street and then back to East Second Street.
The repairs are expected to last until sometime later in the week.
