The City of Superior says confusing road markings on Tower Avenue will soon be fixed.

Last year, Tower Avenue (State Highway 35) through South Superior was converted from four lanes to two with a center turn lane.  However, the new markings have mostly worn off over the winter and some of the old markings are still partially visible, leaving some motorists confused about where they should drive.

The city public works department says crews will be sweeping and washing this week and their contractor will fix the markings next week.
