While much of what the Indiana Department of Transportation is doing for Northwest Indiana’s future is tied to the Illiana Expressway and Cline Avenue Bridge, the region still figures prominently in the agency’s plans for improving the state’s overall transportation network.
On Monday, U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly said what a lot of us have been thinking for a long time. Nothing says state government is slighting this corner of Indiana quite like Cline Avenue.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence has selected state Rep. Suzanne Crouch, R-Evansville, to replace Dwayne Sawyer as Indiana's state auditor.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Borman Expressway has lost its disgruntling distinction as the most congested road in Indiana.
MUNSTER | Preliminary design and final engineering reports are on schedule for the underpass/overpass project at Calumet Avenue and realignment of 45th Street in Munster.
VALPARAISO | The City Council held five public hearings on different issues, most involving spending tax money, at Monday's meeting without garnering any public comments.
INDIANAPOLIS | Without new money for transportation, Indiana will be fighting a losing battle to keep the state's bridges and roads in satisfactory condition, INDOT Commissioner Mike Cline warned state lawmakers Wednesday.
VALPARAISO | As a fan of roundabouts, Valparaiso Mayor Jon Costas said the opening of the new interchange at Vale Park Road and Ind. 49 was a special treat.
MUNSTER | Despite President Barack Obama's optimistic talk about an improving national economy, Gov. Mitch Daniels isn't convinced things are getting better.
INDIANAPOLIS | With money from the Indiana Toll Road lease set to run out in the next three years, a panel of state lawmakers Thursday began looking at how Indiana will pay for roads and bridges in the future.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has skills that will, we hope, serve Purdue University well when his term as governor ends and he transitions to his new role as university president.
It's been about eight weeks, and apparently the Chesterton chapter of Ethics in Government, Tar and Feather Division, was too caught up in Super Bowl fever to get too worked up over the alleged misuse of Major Moves money by town officials.
VALPARAISO | It was a night for receiving awards and spending money at Monday's City Council meeting.
VALPARAISO | The City Council is expected to approve spending more than $2.1 million in county economic development income tax money and another $241,543 in Major Moves funds at its Feb. 13 meeting.
Sometimes an act is criminal, sometimes it's illegal but not criminal, sometimes it's legal but wrong. Where does Chesterton's misuse of Major Moves money fit among those three categories?
Right before his inauguration in 2009, Barack Obama invited the nation's governors to meet with him in Philadelphia to discuss the nation's economic problems. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels teamed up with his buddy, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, to start a conversation about federal stimulus spe…
With a full year left of Mitch Daniels' governorship, there's not much left on his "to do list" because he's done it already. His foremost accomplishment boils down to one word: infrastructure.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' new book only reconfirms his longtime contempt and disgust for an entire region of the state — Northwest Indiana. In it, he perpetuates old and stale stereotypes such as "governmental corruption," and he rips the area as hostile to new employers for what he calls …
A number of ideas have been percolating lately to try to figure out how to address the substantial transportation needs in Northwest Indiana. Keep brewing, rather than pull the plug, but be quick about it.
