TAFT STREET ROAD CLOSURE PLANNED STARTING MONDAY, OCTOBER 14TH

There will be a FULL ROAD CLOSURE 24 hours per day, seven (7) days per week beginning on Monday, October 14, 2019, at 6:00 am.  Merrillville Stormwater Utility has contracted for a drainage improvement project just east of Calumet Park Cemetery between 73rd Avenue and Innsbrook Country Club (67th & Taft Street) that will begin on October 15th.  Taft Street north of 67th Avenue will be open to local traffic only.  Detours for this project are use of Madison Street to the east, 61st Avenue to the north and 73rd Avenue to the south.  Proper signage will also be installed.  See the attached detour map.

The contractor, Dyer Construction Company, Inc., has 20 working days to complete the project, through November 8; however, weather permitting, we do not anticipate the project taking that long unless problems that are not known at this time are presented.

Questions about this project can be directed to the senior construction engineer, Matthew Rosa, at Christopher B. Burke Engineering, LTD., at (224) 217-1039 (cell phone) or by email: mrosa@cbbel.com.
