Wisconsin Point Restoration & Access Improvement Project
In July of 2017, The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program announced that the City of Superior had been awarded a grant in the amount of $1.375 million for the restoration of the dunes on Wisconsin Point.
The project includes:
Development of infrastructure to allow public access and protect the sensitive dunes, as well as, the historical sites on the point
Consolidated parking from 20+ turnouts to approximately four parking areas
Restoration and re-vegetation of dunes
Removal of invasive plants
Boardwalks installed over the dunes for beach access across the sensitive ecosystem. Will be ADA compliant.
Allouez Bay shoreline will be stabilized
Work on this project is currently underway and anticipated to be complete by mid to late summer 2019. Please note that during the project, different parking areas will be closed, so please watch for signage. Please respect any closed signs and areas that are fenced off as these restoration areas contain fragile vegetation. Also please be alert for construction workers and equipment on Wisconsin Point Road and reduce your speed for safety.
