VALPARAISO | It didn't open in time for Thanksgiving, as planned, but a few days of almost Indian summer were just what was needed to complete the final touches on the five-points roundabout Monday.
VALPARAISO | The city hopes to transplant a spruce from Forest Park to the five-points roundabout at Calumet Avenue, Roosevelt Road and Vale Park Road next week with the goal of a tree-lighting and roundabout opening ceremony Nov. 24 -- just ahead of Thanksgiving.
VALPARAISO | Digging up the five-points intersection for the roundabout construction has been like a trip through the city's past. Only Indian burial mounds and maybe a dinosaur skeleton are lacking so far.
VALPARAISO | The Porter County Museum Foundation has reached one milestone in its quest to transform the former Valparaiso City Hall into the new Porter County Museum.
VALPARAISO | A miscalculation of the measurements for the Silhavy Road pathway project resulted in the city paying $86,537 more to complete the project than expected.
VALPARAISO | Visitors to City Hall once again can enter the building through the front door.
VALPARAISO | Switching to LED lights for its streetlights and traffic signals has been a good investment for Valparaiso.
VALPARAISO | The roundabout at Silhavy and Vale Park roads is expected to open completely in time for the afternoon rush hour today.

VALPARAISO | City officials breathed a collective sigh of relief Wednesday as work resumed on several projects shut down because of the operating engineers strike, including the Central Park Plaza.
VALPARAISO | All the pieces are starting to come together, but it's still going to be a real nip-and-tuck battle with the clock to finish the new Central Park Plaza in time.
VALPARAISO | Three contracts totaling more than $200,000 were approved Thursday by Valparaiso's Board of Public Works and Safety.
VALPARAISO | Contracts and funding for the design of two projects and the construction of two more were approved this week by separate city boards.
VALPARAISO | It appears Valparaiso and NIPSCO are finally on the same page and work to move the electric and gas lines from the center of the downtown park should begin in earnest Monday.
VALPARAISO | Through a combination of removing items from the project and adding donations, Valparaiso is ready to proceed with construction of the downtown Central Park Plaza.
VALPARAISO | Having bids come in $140,000 above estimates and the time needed to acquire property turned out to be minor obstacles to construction of the downtown park compared to the failure of NIPSCO to move utility poles.
