Water main break shifts traffic

A water main break on East Second Street is going to affect traffic.

Superior, Superior Water, Light and Power has requested a traffic lane switch so crews can make repairs under the roadway, according to Chris Ouellette, Wisconsin Department of Transportation spokesperson.

Beginning Friday, northbound U.S. Highway 53 and westbound U.S. Highway 2 will be switched to the southbound/eastbound lanes from 43rd to 48th avenues east. Lanes will be restricted to 10 feet wide in the area.

The repairs are expected to take until sometime next week.
