MERRILLVILLE | Road improvements could begin in coming weeks on 77th Avenue between Taney Place and Marshall Street.

The Town Council on Tuesday awarded a contract to Rex Construction for nearly $350,000.

The road will be milled and repaved. Drainage problems and issues with curbs also will be addressed.

Salk Elementary School, which is located in the project area, is planning additional work on the south side of 77th Avenue, Town Manager Bruce Spires said.

That work includes widening the road to alleviate parking issues outside the school, he said.
