Work on the five-points intersection continued Tuesday along Roosevelt Road. Work is expected to continue to the end of October or beginning of November. New water and storm sewers are being installed through the intersection before construction of the roundabout begins. To learn about the h…
VALPARAISO | The five-points roundabout was five years in the making and will take about five months for the building.
I, as a taxpayer of Valparaiso, say kudos to Joyce Woodworth's opinion of the 5-point roundabout. Did we, the community, get an opportunity to vote in this undertaking? Valparaiso is not a large metropolis like Indy.

Why is Valparaiso turning the intersection by Kmart into a roundabout? That's the five-way intersection of Calumet, Vale Park Road and Roosevelt Road. There are already traffic signals at this intersection, and they work perfectly fine -- plus, they're paid for.
VALPARAISO | With construction of the five-points roundabout expected to begin soon, the city set up a Web page to help people deal with the schedule and road closings. There's even a video on how to drive in a two-lane roundabout.
VALPARAISO | The final numbers could get some tweaking, but the city's Redevelopment Commission approved funding Wednesday to cover the local share and the construction management contract for the five-points roundabout project.
