Year 1 will be completed within 30 days. A gas main conflict at South Street and Lakewood caused the recent delays. This is being corrected by NIPSCO and final surface will then be applied. Completion of Phase 2 of this project is scheduled for 2019. When completed, over $3 million will have been invested to alleviate storm water problems. Over 50% of this project in road work, 43% is storm, the remaining being in water and sanitary.
This subdivision, Main Street to 213th, Sheffield to Calumet, has long had problems with drainage and other aging infrastructure. The Town has addressed this issue by completing water main, storm and sanitary sewer inventories. In addition, all streets have a PASER (condition) rating. This information is being used to begin these long awaited repairs. This project will begin in the spring.
Y2019: Madison Avenue 213th north to 210th
We began work on Madison Avenue from 211th to 213th. This project includes new storm sewers, water main replacement, and full street reconstruction. The project was awarded last fall.
Y2019: Pierce, Fillmore, 205th, and 206th
The design phase of this areas should be completed this winter to allow the improvements to begin next year.
Hart St./ Sheffield Bridge Project
We still do not have a bid date from Lake County Highway for the replacement of the Hart Street Bridge south of RT30. Traffic will be restricted to northbound on Hart/Sheffield, except for emergency vehicles. There will be a temporary emergency signal to protect emergency vehicles going south.
The Town will be resurfacing the road from RT30 to the south corporate limits and 81st street to the State line and east corporate limits. This $1.3 million project is being funded by a 50% grant from the Community Crossing Matching Grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation. This work will be done outside of the County’s bridge project. There will be moving traffic restrictions and delays.
RT30 Median- approaching Hart Street
The State Department of Transportation has approved our request to modify the non-mountable median on RT 30 approaching Hart Street. This work will be done this summer, by local contractor J&J Newell. It will require some reduction in lanes during the construction. When it is completed it will extend the left turn and help west bound traffic flow.
77th Avenue- Schererville
77th Ave. is scheduled for bridge and road resurfacing, between U.S. 41 & St. John Road. The road closure is scheduled to start Monday May 6, 2019 and continue for 4-6 weeks. The roadway will be completely closed at the bridge deck. No traffic will be allowed on the bridge deck during this time. All traffic is encouraged to plan ahead in using alternate roadways to avoid the closure area. Please visit the Schererville website for more with additional questions.
Calumet Avenue- Munster
Beginning May 4th drivers using Calumet Avenue in Munster will begin to experience lane reductions and delays as preliminary work begins on the 45th Street Grade separation. The initial lane closures are anticipated to last until November. Look for updates in the NWI Times. We will update the Dyer Web site and Facebook page as new information becomes available. The full scope of the project is listed on the Town of Munster’s website at www.munster.org.
Main Street Bridge over Hart Ditch - Munster (Lake County Project)
