MERRILLVILLE | Safety concerns have prompted town officials to start road closures during the 54th Avenue storm sewer reconstruction project, which is ongoing between Johnson and Fillmore streets.
Construction crews will work in one street block at a time. Closures will take place in the areas in which workers are located, town officials said.
The road will be open for daily mail delivery, local residential traffic and emergency vehicles.
The town encourages other motorists to use 57th Avenue to avoid the construction area.
The project could be finished by the end of August or early September.
