Good news for Superior, and for Wisconsin Point specifically, as the city has been awarded a $1.375 million Coastal Management Program grant.

According to, the money will be used to remove invasive plants, close 15 public access points, improve five existing access points, stabilize shoreline, dunes and wetlands, construct an ADA-compliant boardwalk and consolidate parking areas.

Work is expected to begin next spring and will take several months to complete.

The city also received a second grant of $24,664 which will fund an outdoor recreation plan.
