Superior’s City Council on Tuesday took steps to improve traffic on Tower Avenue in South Superior.
The council approved a change in the speed limit on Tower Avenue from North 52nd to 64th streets and gave final approval to a plan designed to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians alike.
The speed limit will increase to 30 mph to create a more consistent speed through the neighborhood adjacent to State Highway 35.
While the speed limit will increase, changes in the roadway itself, which includes changing the striping to reduce the number of drive lanes to two and creation of a center turn lane are designed to enhance safety.
City officials plan to implement the changes this summer, with more to come in subsequent years to create medians in an effort to improve pedestrian safety.
