2019 Projects

US 2, Belknap Street Improvement Project
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), in coordination with the City of Superior, has reconstructed US 2, Belknap Street, from Banks Avenue to Hill Avenue. This project replaced 1.4 miles of concrete roadway, upgraded the storm sewer system, and improved safety on Belknap Street. The project also included improvements on most of the connecting side streets north and south of US 2, Belknap Street, back to the respective alleys. Phase I of the reconstruction of the street was completed in November  2017 and Phase II will be fully completed in the spring of 2019.  Please click on the link for information and updates from WisDOT.    More Information

US 2/US 53, East 2nd Street Resurfacing Project

Newton & Nelson Creeks Sewer Improvement Project
The City of Superior is addressing inflow and infiltration along Newton and Nelson Creeks. During significant wet weather events, sanitary sewers adjacent to Newton Creek (along 25th Avenue East right of way) and Nelson Creek (along 30th Avenue East right of way) become inundated by stream flow. This inflow increases flow throughout the sewers and overwhelms the system.
The project will significantly reduce infiltration and inflow to the Newton Creek & Nelson Creek trunk sewers by rehabilitating sewers and manholes, and by removing an above grade creek crossing. A new sewer is being installed in the 26th Avenue East Right-of-Way to further reduce flows to the Newton Creek sewer.

Sidewalk Projects

The areas where 2019 sidewalk work will be done will be posted here as soon as available.  If you are a homeowner in these areas, you will be receiving a letter further detailing the work and other important information about the project. 

If you live in these areas, please be mindful of "no parking" signs being put up on the streets as this is an indication that work will begin soon in your area and access will be needed for both the crews and their equipment.

Once work begins in your area, crews will be setting up forms, and pouring the new sidewalks.  Once poured, the concrete needs to cure and harden for one week.  During this curing process it is important that the concrete not be driven on or heavily used.  This is especially important if you have a sidewalk crossing your driveway access.

Your cooperation and patience with us as we work is very much appreciated.  If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact the Engineering Department at: 715-395-7300.
