Lightning Detection System Installed
10/3/2018 11:28:41 AM by Tammi Hedrick

The Town of Dyer has installed a Thor Guard Lightning Prediction and Warning System throughout the Town. Throughout the Town, you will see 10 solar powered satellites at the following locations:

 

Main Satellites:

Plum Creek Center

Dyer Fire Department Station 2

 

Remote Satellite:

Autumn Chase Park

Sandy Ridge Water Tower

Northgate Park

Heritage Estates Park

Eberly Park

Hearthstone Park

Mallard Cove Water Tower

Dyer Public Works

 

These sites were chosen in order to give proper coverage throughout the Town. The Thor Guard System predicts lightning and constantly monitors the local environment and focuses on predicting whether or not there is enough energy change to create a lightning strike in our area. Once lightning is predicted, the main satellite will send a signal to the remote satellite and you will hear a 15 second horn blast. This signals that lightning is coming to the area. At that time, everyone should seek shelter in an enclosed building or automobile and all outdoor activities should stop. Park pavilions are not safe shelter.  A strobe light will begin to flash and remain flashing until safe conditions return. Once lighting is cleared from the area, you will hear three 5 second horn blast signaling all is safe and outdoor activities can resume.

The websites below will give more information about the Thor Guard Lightning Prediction and Warning System:

2018 Infrastructure Projects
10/19/2018 2:23:00 PM by

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.

You can subscribe to our Text Messaging Program by texting 36000 to Dyer1.

NIPSCO Continues Upgrades
NIPSCO will be upgrading its infrastructure along Route US 30 and Hart Street. The biggest impact will be lane closures along Route US 30 during construction. These closures will impact only the outside lanes as needed.

For more information please visit www.NIPSCO.com/future or see the attached link for the Press Release.  

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.

Berens-Monaldi
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.

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
This project has been awarded and is anticipated to begin in the Spring.

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.
