Road Work Updates
McCaslin Boulevard/Main Street Roundabout
The new roundabout on McCaslin Boulevard at the intersection with Main Street in Downtown Superior will open to through traffic in July.  Please be advised of the new traffic pattern.  The side street connections will be under construction for several more weeks so turning onto Main Street will not be available from the roundabout during this period.  The bypass travel lanes which were in place on McCaslin Boulevard during the roundabout construction will be removed in July as this new connection to Main Street is constructed.   A temporary pedestrian and bicycle path will be available on the east side of the roundabout, but care should be taken when traveling through this construction zone. There is not a path on the west side of the roundabout, so bicyclists will travel through the roundabout to proceed south on McCaslin.  There will also be periodic lane closures on McCaslin in order to complete street light installation and landscape work.   Please be advised that the speed limit will remain 25 mph in this area during this construction, and there will be flaggers present to coordinate temporary stops to allow for construction vehicle crossings.  The Sport Stable at Superior and Downtown Superior will continue to be accessible via the temporary road located north of the roundabout, but southbound traffic desiring to access this road will proceed through the roundabout  to make a U-turn heading north on McCaslin, and then make a right turn at this road.   Thank you for your patience during the roundabout construction.

Marshall Road Extension
Marshall Road, east of Starbucks, will be paved in early July.  It will be open to construction traffic only.  It will serve the new Element Hotel, which will start construction in the coming months.
Striping and Pavement Marking Operations
The Town’s contractor will be performing striping on primary streets at night throughout Town in July.  Installation of arrows, symbols and crosswalks will mostly occur during daylight hours within temporary work zones.   Please be careful driving through these work zones.

Historical Commission Corner
The Superior Historical Museum will be OPEN on July 1st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Be sure to visit the Museum and see our current exhibit, “The Dust Bowl in Colorado and Superior” before it is rotated out. We have an attractive visual display showing the time line and significant photographs from the Dust Bowl days. In addition to that, there is a notebook providing deeper information on this natural disaster that was centered in Colorado in the mid 1930’s. The exhibits featuring Josephine Roche, owner of Superior’s Industrial Coal Mine, and Edith Oerman, Superior School’s favorite teacher, are still on view as well. The Museum is located at 2nd and Maple Streets in Original Superior. 

The Town of Superior’s vintage fire truck will be in this year’s Fourth of July Parade. Exterior renovation was completed in time for last year’s July 4th holiday celebration. This year the truck will have just returned from having its interior repainted and reupholstered. Also, it will be a quieter parade vehicle as the exhaust system will have been replaced. Come by and see the truck on display in the Community Park lot after the parade. Of course, we hope you will drop by our booth in the park after you’ve enjoyed your pancakes. Commission members and volunteers will be at both locations to answer your questions.

When you are cooling off poolside this summer keep these tips in mind for a safe reprieve from the heat.

1) Never leave children unattended near the water.
2) Be sure children know how to swim. Enroll them in lessons locally by CLICKING HERE.
3) Teach children not to play near drains.

4) Learn CPR.
5) Wear sunscreen and reapply often. 

The vegetation in the greenbelts and open space is drying out. Please be safe with sparks and sources of heat and flames to prevent wildfires.  If you do witness a wildfire starting please call 911.
