The Wisconsin Department of Transportation, city of Superior and Business Improvement District have been reviewing the potential effects of the 2013 construction on properties within the construction zone.
Now property owners can learn more about what to expect and prepare for the long-planned project during meetings sponsored by the city, WisDOT and Superior BID.
Reconstruction includes replacing utilities, the road and sidewalks adjacent to buildings and property lines. Plans include deep excavation for underground utility replacement work on the Tower Avenue, and adjacent to buildings. Construction activities such as dust, noise and vibration are expected with this reconstruction project.
