Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College is beginning phase two of renovations to its Superior campus, with work expected to wrap up for the year this fall.

This year’s renovations will see the addition of a colonnade sculpture on the patio at the school’s new front entrance along Catlin Avenue. A new patio also will be laid at the front entrance.

The sculpture was created by WITC welding students. Its columns will support an iron-like metal piece that’s designed to reflect the bridge between Superior and Duluth, according to a news release.

New staff and student parking lots will use bioswales, which are designed to remove silt and pollution from stormwater runoff. Twenty-six new trees will be planted near the parking lot to replace trees that were uprooted during earlier work.

During phase one of the renovations in 2018, WITC’s campus received a new façade and a new paint job. Glass along an exterior wall of the school’s atrium was replaced, and classrooms and restrooms were renovated and relocated. Further classroom renovations are slated for 2020.
