EAST CHICAGO | This notice is to inform you that Private Street will be under construction beginning, September 11, 2013. As a result of the construction project, THE DRIVE THRU WINDOW OF THE WATER DEPARTMENT WILL BE CLOSED. Employees and customers will access the Water Department parking lot via the gravel parking lot located east of Private Street that is owned by Calumet Lumber.
Private Street will be completely reconstructed with new drainage structures, curb, and new pavement; the water department parking lot will also be milled and paved during this construction. We will also be installing new handicap ramps at the corners of Chicago Avenue.
Customers have the option of paying their water bill at Peoples Bank, Citizens (Indianapolis Blvd), Citizens (Columbus Drive), Strack and Van Tils, on the internet with debit/credit or over the phone with debit/credit.
This is one of many projects currently happening throughout East Chicago. Mayor Anthony Copeland is committed to improving our infrastructure and making our city cleaner and safer.
Other projects include:
- Guthrie Street Resurfacing Project
- Northcote Avenue - 145th Street to Columbus Drive
- Northcote Reconstruction - 151st to Chicago Avenue
- 145th Street Road Rehabilitation Project
We thank you for your patience with us and the construction crews as we continue our efforts to renew our East Chicago.
