Indiana Department Of Transportation
MERRILLVILLE | The 73rd Avenue Bridge over Interstate 65 closed Monday for two weeks of repairs and maintenance, Indiana Department of Transportation representatives said.
CHICAGO | Nearly 200 Illinois communities are scrambling to find road salt after last winter's record frigid temperatures and snowfall depleted supplies, according to local leaders and state officials who oversee a shared procurement process.
Where, oh where is the Cline Avenue Expressway bridge?
GARY | Like the enormous T-Rex of movie fame, the 160-ton excavator tore through the house at 2331 Jackson St. on Tuesday, reducing it to rubble in about 10 minutes.
HOBART | Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, and that's a good sign for the employees of the TradeWinds sign shop.
This being summer, it's officially road construction season. It's also time for the perennial reminder that extra caution must be exercised in work zones.
WINFIELD | The town can hold off on naming the members of the committee to select the consultant for a master plan of the downtown that will make it pedestrian friendly.
Just a few months ago, the Illiana Expressway appeared to be on a fast track to construction, but recent events have thrown some speed bumps in its way.
ST. JOHN | The town council has talked about doing a major road project for several years, but, when it had only $200,000 to $250,000 a year to spend, the conversation was more of a brief chat followed by a long sigh.
The repairs on the two CSX railroad bridges over U.S. 231 are complete, and the road is open again, a spokesman for the Indiana Department of Transportation said.
Two bridge projects are giving drivers in west Lake County the summer road construction blues, and summer doesn't even start until Saturday.
WINFIELD | Winfield is still a small town but it is a busy one, which creates problems for pedestrians in its downtown.
Northwest Indiana is awash in bureaucracy. It threatens many projects vital to the region's future.
Anyone who has ever been in Chesterton or Porter for any length of time understands the importance of the Porter Junction project to get trains moving faster through that bottleneck.
PORTAGE | Sales at the Walgreens on U.S. 6 and Willowcreek Road have continually declined to the point the store may have to close.
LAPORTE | The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold a job fair 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at its Northwest Indiana District Office, 315 E. Boyd Blvd., in LaPorte.
INDIANAPOLIS | When it comes to federal spending for Indiana projects, Gov. Mike Pence is discovering the view from his Statehouse desk is a lot different from his old stomping ground in the U.S. House.
In February, I said the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission was letting the whole community down. Its historical lack of transparency and failure to engage residents in setting priorities and making decisions about taxpayer money was outrageous.
Indiana and Illinois have announced the signing of a binding agreement on the Illiana Expressway, covering everything from financing to maintenance of the 47-mile expressway.
Cline Avenue is now restricted to one lane in each direction between Chicago Avenue and Michigan Street/5th Avenue as preparations begin for repaving the pothole-laden road.
