215th
Per Walsh & Kelly, 215th Storm work is scheduled to start September 16th. Walsh & Kelly will/is notifying busses & emergency departments.

Hart/Sheffield Paving
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.  

The Town has allowed Gallagher Asphalt to continue working on 81st street and the remaining area of Hart Street.  They have modified their installation method for the pavement fabric with their sub-contractor, which follows exactly the installation instruction manual.  We believe that this is the cause of the rough surface issue. 

Regarding the existing areas, that we have not accepted, they plan to use induction heating and attempt to address the issue of the wavy pavement. This is a possible solution for them to address the unaccepted areas of asphalt surface.  If this does not produce a satisfactory result we will not accept that portion of the pavement.  We are reviewing their proposed fix and have  contacted a pavement/geotechnical specialist for his input on the issues currently and consider their proposed remedial measures.

Thank you for your patience.  Please drive carefully in this area.

Berens-Monaldi
Engineers and staff are currently reviewing the work in Berens as a final step.  Over $3 million has 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.

Northgate Subdivision
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 have completed the work on Madison Avenue from 211th to 213th.  This project included new storm sewers, water main replacement, and full street reconstruction.  The project was roughly a 

Y2019: Pierce, Fillmore, 205th, and 206th
The design phase of this area 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. 

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 project will be completed by local contractor J&J Newell.  It will require some reduction in lanes during the construction.  Once completed it will extend the left turn and help west bound traffic flow.  The project will increase the turn lanes stacking capacity by approximately ten vehicles.  The project, which is an INDOT project, will begin October 7, 2019 and scheduled to end October 21. 2019.  Please avoid this area or plan accordingly.    

Calumet Avenue- Munster 

As a part of the overall construction of the 45th Street underpass project, Walsh Construction will be closing 45th Street, between Calumet Avenue and Southwood Drive on Monday, June 3rd. This will also include closing Southwood Drive, at its intersection with 45th Street. Southwood Drive will be reopened prior to traffic prior to he first day of school in early August 2019. Work on the entirety of the project, including the underpass and improvements to Calumet Avenue, are expected to be complete by December 2020.    
Look for updates in the NWI Times.  We will update the Dyer website and Facebook page as new information becomes available. The full scope of the project is listed on the Town of Munster’s website at https://www.munster.org/egov/documents/1558470163_37998.pdf

On March 1, 2018, our office received the following letter from the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD).

"The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD), in cooperation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, have prepared a combined Final Environmental Impact Statement/Record of Decision and Section 4(f) Evaluation (FEIS/ROD) to evaluate the West Lake Corridor Project. The FEIS/ROD has been prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 USC § 4332); Efficient Environmental Reviews for Project Decisionmaking (23 USC § 139); Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedures of the National Environmental Policy Act (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508); FHWA/FTA Environmental Impact and Related Procedures (23 CFR Part 771); Section 4(f) requirements (49 USC § 303 and 23 USC § 138) and regulations (23 CFR Part 774); and Clean Water Act (33 USC § 1251 et seq).

The West Lake Corridor Project is an approximately 9-mile south extension of the existing NICTD South Shore Line (SSL) commuter rail service between Dyer and Hammond, Indiana. The Project would end just east of the Indiana-Illinois state line, where Project trains would connect with the SSL to travel north to Chicago. The West Lake Corridor Project includes four commuter rail stations and a maintenance facility/layover yard.

The combined FEIS/ROD for the West Lake Corridor Project is available for review online at www.nictdwestlake.com/resources/. Hard copies of the FEIS/ROD are available for review at:
  • Munster Branch of the Lake County Public Library, 8701 Calumet Ave, Munster, IN 46321
  • Hammond Public Library, 564 State St, Hammond, IN 46320
  • Dyer-Schererville Branch of the Lake County Public Library, 1001 W Lincoln Hwy, Schererville, IN 46375
  • NICTD's Administrative Offices, 33 East U.S. Highway 12, Chesterton, IN 46304
If you would like a printed copy of the FEIS/ROD or a digital copy on a compact disc, please contact the project's automated hotline at (219) 250-2920 or email us at: project.email@nictdwestlake.com.

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the West Lake Corridor Project was issued on December 16, 2016, with a public comment period occurring between December 16, 2016 and February 3, 2017. The DEIS evaluated the environmental, transportation, social, and economic impacts associated with the proposed transportation improvements in the West Lake Corridor, which would serve the Towns of Munster and Dyer, and the City of Hammond in Lake County, Indiana.

The combined FEIS/ROD includes discussions of changes since the DEIS, and responses to substantive comments received during the DEIS public comment period. Responses are in the form of clarifications and references to sections of the FEIS where issues raised are addressed, and factual corrections have been made. The ROD states FTA's decision, identifies the alternatives considered in reaching the decision, and describes the means to avoid, minimize, or mitigate impacts. Mitigation plans, including enforcement and monitoring comments, are included in the ROD. The Final Section 4(f) Evaluation is included in the combined FEIS/ROD.

If you have any questions about the West Lake Corridor Project, please call (219) 250-2920 or email us at project.email@nictdwestlake.com."
