WisDOT hosts open house about East Second Street project

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Northwest Region holds a public involvement meeting to discuss resurface and improvements on U.S. highways 2 and 53, East Second Street between 29th Avenue East to 53rd Avenue East in the city of Superior.

The meeting runs 4:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at St. Anthony Catholic Church Parish Hall, 4315 E. Third St., Superior.

The format is an informal open house. Exhibits of the plan concepts and traffic impacts will be on display. Project representatives will be available to discuss the project on an individual basis.

This project involves resurfacing of pavement with concrete panel repair, including repair of inlets and utility manholes, curb ramp replacements and select sidewalk panel replacement. The two bridge structures within the project limits, the Nemadji River and Bluff Creek, would be rehabilitated.

The signal system at the intersection of 39th Avenue East and East Second Street would be fully replaced. This project is planned for the 2021 construction season. During construction, traffic would be maintained East Second Street, occurring in at least two separate stages, with two-way, two-lane traffic maintained on one side of the roadway.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions concerning the project.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, contact Stephanie King at 715-392-7874 or Comments may be mailed to
