The following projects are under construction this fall, some of these will cause disruptions to traffic.
CSX RR Crossings – Munster to Lowell
Much needed repairs to 22 different railroad crossings will be started by CSX in late October. The RR is starting in Munster and will continue to work its way south. Dyer will see improvements to Sheffield, 213th, 215th, and Edmond. The crossing at 77th Street, 81st Avenue, and Patterson Avenue will also be repaired. Each crossing will be completely closed for approximately 3 days. These repairs will make for a better driving experience in the affected areas. We will make every effort to provide early warning to motorists via the website, signage, our text messaging service, etc.

Sheffield Avenue – Main Street to Route US 30 and 213th
This long awaited project has finally gotten underway. It was delayed by the NIPSCO utility work in the area. In addition to resurfacing, extensive repairs have been made to curbs and storm repairs. We have made extensive repairs and extensions to sidewalks.
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.
