Traffic on a portion of U.S. Highway 53 in Superior could be detoured until Friday due to work on a sanitary sewer main.

Southbound lanes of the highway, also known as East 2nd Street, closed at Noon on Tuesday in the north end of the city.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation said it should reopen by Friday.

Southbound drivers are officially being detoured onto North 3rd Street and Tower Avenue (Highway 35) to Belknap Street (U.S. Highway 2) and then back to East 2nd Street.  Those who know about the closure before the exit ramp can also take Hammond Avenue to get to Belknap more quickly.

Northbound traffic is unaffected.
