The Wisconsin Department of Transportation, (WISDOT) Northwest Regional Office in Superior is pleased to announce the majority of the reconstruction of Tower Avenue has come to an end.
Work on the $14 million project began on April 15 and the road opened to traffic Tuesday, Oct 22. While the main roadway is completed, crews will continue to work on other aspects of the project outside the driving lanes. Additional landscaping and plantings will occur next year.
"We are extremely pleased with the finished product and I believe motorists will enjoy driving on the new highway that serves as a gateway to the city of Superior," said Don Gutkowski, Northwest Region director. "We also appreciate the patience of businesses and motorists during the reconstruction."
Some of the new features include: new parking, sidewalk, street lighting, a new storm sewer system, raised medians and an overall new roadway configuration.
