Road Work Updates
McCaslin Boulevard Roundabout Construction
The developer of Downtown Superior (Superior Town Center) is required to improve the new intersection of Main Street and McCaslin Blvd. by building a roundabout. The new roundabout will be four lanes (two lanes in each direction) and is currently under construction.  The developer is managing the project and hired Hall-Irwin Construction to build the roundabout. This roundabout will provide the main entrance to Downtown Superior and the new Sport Stable.  To facilitate construction without impacting traffic on McCaslin, temporary bypass roads were built around the work site.  Construction continues this month with the installation of road base and concrete curb & gutter. A number of utility conflicts and relocates along with weather issues caused several weeks of delay this winter.  The utility conflicts have been resolved and concrete paving will occur through the end of April.  Once the concrete work on McCaslin is done, the temporary bypass roads need to be removed and the connection to Main Street constructed.   The Main Street leg and full roundabout operations should be ready by the end of May.   Please observe the reduced speed limit of 25 mph through the work zone. Thank you for your patience.

Historic Walk
Saturday,  May 6th, 2:00 pm 

The Historical Commission is proud once again to invite you to its annual Historic Walk Through Original Superior. It will be on May 6, 2017 and will start after the Museum closes at 2:00 pm. This popular event involves meeting at the Superior Historical Museum, walking to Grasso Park and then walking to the Industrial Mine and Mine Camp site on Boulder County Open Space south of Coal Creek. Historic Walk volunteers will lead participants from Asti Park to the two other sites, providing narration about the local history. They will next be led past the foundations of the various mine buildings including the mine shaft and fan house. Next comes the foundations of the mine camp, a collection of nearly 30 buildings where the coal miners and families lived, worked and played. 

Participants should plan on walking at least two miles and should wear appropriate shoes and clothing for the terrain and weather. Children are welcome but the preceding caution need to be extended to them. You are invited to come before 2 o’clock and visit the Museum before it closes, then take the walk.

RSVP by emailing bryanm@superiorcolorado.gov with the total number of attendees in your group. Please contact Bryan Meyer, Town Staff, at 303-499-3675 or Larry Dorsey, Commission Chair at 303-499-1969 for additional information.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Awareness
Spring has sprung and people have gotten back outdoors in the mornings and evenings.  With the increase in bicycle and pedestrian traffic motorists are reminded to double check for pedestrians in crosswalks prior to crossing intersections.  The light this time of year can be particularly blinding and difficult to see sidewalks and bike lanes.  Keep your windows clean and free of dirt and film and if you can’t see well; slow down especially before turning a corner.   

If you are out recreating around dawn and dusk ensure your bike has lights and good reflectors and your clothing has reflective qualities as well.  Kids especially need to be reminded of safe biking and skateboarding/scootering tips.  First and foremost wear a properly fitted helmet.  Always use the crosswalk and make eye contact with drivers before crossing intersections.  Put your electronic device down and pay attention to your surroundings.  Watch for other pedestrians around and ahead of you.  Don’t weave in and out of parked cars and especially don’t enter the street without looking for traffic first.  

Keep safety in mind before heading out this spring!
