Drivers visiting Superior Middle School may need to tweak their route.

As of Monday, Nov. 25, the roadway in front of the main office entrance became a one-way. The one-way section begins at the four-way intersection with North 37th Street as vehicles travel east from Tower Avenue. Traffic coming from Hammond Avenue must drive down North 37th Street to enter the roadway from that intersection, as well.

The change was made based on feedback from parents and the Superior Police Department and should improve traffic flow in the area, according to Principal Dave Jensen.

"With the new traffic flow we are hoping dropping off and picking up will be more efficient," he said. "Some cars were parking on the wrong side and in the wrong direction making it difficult during dismissal."

Jensen said he observed that most cars were already entering and parking in the direction of the new one way during dismissal this week.

Superior High School has had a one-way road in front of its main entrance since the beginning of the school year. Traffic must access the road from Catlin Avenue and exit onto Spartan Drive. Vehicles may not enter the roadway from Spartan Drive.

“Drivers have been getting used to the changes,” Principal Rick Flaherty said.
