WisDOT hopes to involve public on plans for East Second Street

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northwest Region will hold a public involvement meeting to discuss resurface and improvements to U.S. Highways 2/53, East Second Street, between Second and 31st avenues east in Superior.

The meeting runs 5-6:30 p.m. March 22 at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Lake Superior Room, 1701 N. Fourth St., Superior.

The meeting will be an informal open house. Exhibits showing the plan concepts, traffic impacts, and impacts to parks and recreational areas will be on display. Project representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

This project involves the resurfacing of pavement with concrete panel repair, and includes repair of inlets and utility manholes, curb ramp replacements, and sidewalk panel replacement. The structure spanning the railroad would be rehabilitated, including a surface overlay. This project is expected to occur during the 2020 construction season. An alternate vehicle route and a truck detour will be utilized during construction. The proposed detour route will use East Fifth Street.
