Construction has begun on our Barker's Island Beach Restoration Project! This project is a collaboration with the Wisconsin DNR, City of Superior and Area of Concern partners. The project has been designed to reduce levels of e. coli bacteria by optimizing the beach characteristics, managing runoff, enhancing wetland areas and deterring wildlife. Other improvements will include additional parking, a raised boardwalk and restroom facilities. Please visit our web page for additional details about the project and view a great conceptual video! 

Please note that due to construction, many areas of the beach may be inaccessible in the coming weeks, so please plan accordingly. As this exciting project unfolds, we would appreciate your cooperation in respecting the contractors on site and we look forward to unveiling a beautifully restored beach that all citizens can enjoy!
