MERRILLVILLE | The town is nearly finished acquiring right of way for the Mississippi Street improvement project.
Councilman Shawn Pettit said there are four parcels left to obtain. Those parcels are being acquired through condemnation proceedings, he said.
During the enhancement project, Mississippi Street would be reconstructed and widened to four lanes from 101st Avenue to just south of U.S. 30.
If the right of way acquisition remains on schedule, bid letting could occur in the spring.
