Message From the Mayor

With warmer weather on the way this month, it’s time to start planning now for outdoor activities.  The Town will be hosting several programs this month to get everyone outside to enjoy the sunshine, trails, parks and open spaces in our community.  Members of the Superior Historical Commission will kick off the season with their annual Walk Through Original Superior on May 6th.  The free walk will begin at the Superior Historical Museum in Asti Park and make stops at Grasso Park, the site of Superior Train Depot and the Industrial Mine Camp.  Then on May 20, the Town's Wildlife Ecologist Ashley DeLaup will host a free beginner bird walk along the banks of Rock Creek near Autrey Park. May also means it's time for the Community Garage Sale and the opening of the North and South Swimming Pools. There are plenty of activities taking place this month to welcome in the warm weather.

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 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 occurred 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 this month.   Please observe the reduced speed limit of 25 mph through the work zone. Thank you for your patience.

Electric Bicycles Legal in Superior
Electric bicycles are making it easier than ever to commute by bike or to provide mobility for those that aren’t as able-bodied. Last fall, Commuting Solutions convened local government staff to influence establishing ordinances that allow cyclists to legally travel in Superior and throughout the northwest metro region.

During the current legislative session, the State Legislature signed into law  HB17-1151, a bill that enables e-bikes to be used in Colorado communities unless a city chooses to not allow it. We are proud to share that Superior is leading the way in increasing accessibility to cycling by allowing e-bikes on streets throughout the city. Plan your perfect trip using the  Bike Northwest Interactive Bike Map and cycle further than ever before on an e-bike! For additional information about e-bikes and Superior’s ordinance, please click  here
Drive With Caution
Significant road and building construction is occurring in Superior, bringing many hazards. When you are driving through a construction zone, slow to the reduced speed limit, giving additional time to react to vehicles, road signs blowing into traffic and pedestrians. Watch out for flaggers and construction equipment. Stay off your phone, turn down the radio and avoid looking away from the road.  Do not enter active construction zones as a pedestrian.  Open holes and trenches, moving structural members and cranes are just a few of the moving obstacles on a construction site.  

Emergency vehicles are maneuvering the same obstacles as you in construction areas.  Do not block parking lot aisles, roads and hydrants with your vehicle.  If we can’t reach you, we can’t help you.  For additional construction zone driving tips CLICK HERE.

CLICK HERE for updated road impacts in Boulder County.  The diverging diamond over US 36 has become second nature, however it remains confusing for out of town visitors.  There are two lights on the 25 mph bridge be sure to watch for visitors new to the area who may not know about the lights or which lane to be in. Give yourself and our visitors a little extra time and space it may prevent an accident.

Save $180 when switching to a cordless electric lawn mower!
