VALPARAISO | Two city pathway projects got action from the Board of Public Works and Safety on Friday.
VALPARAISO | A study by DLZ confirmed the best solution for improving traffic flow at the Silhavy Road/LaPorte Avenue intersection is a two-lane roundabout similar to the one operating at the Calumet Avenue, Vale Park Road and Roosevelt Road intersection.
VALPARAISO | The city's Redevelopment Commission approved funding Wednesday for upgrading traffic signals and signage at 20 intersections, including the one at LaPorte Avenue and Harmel Drive.
VALPARAISO | The city has started the process of choosing consultants for three projects to be done over the next three years, including safety improvements to Ransom Road's notorious "roller coaster hills."
VALPARAISO | The city learned Friday about $2.2 million in federal funds for Silhavy Road/LaPorte Avenue intersection improvements are expected to be approved in the NIRPC 2014-2017 transportation plan.
VALPARAISO | The city could be one of the first to try to take advantage of a new state law that allows it to trade federal funds for state dollars to reduce costs and speed up projects.
VALPARAISO | The state of plans to improve Silhavy Road from LaPorte Avenue to Evans Avenue could be decided at Valparaiso's Redevelopment Commission meeting in May.
VALPARAISO | A request to add a traffic signal at Silhavy Road and Chicago Street will be one of the issues the city looks at as part of the improvements to Silhavy between LaPorte Avenue and Evans Avenue.
VALPARAISO | A vital element to both the five-points roundabout project and the drainage improvements for the Hawthorn Subdivision should be under construction by mid-April.
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 | Bids were opened from three companies and a contract could be awarded soon for the construction of the five-points roundabout at North Calumet Avenue, Roosevelt Road and Vale Park Road.
VALPARAISO | Roundabouts still give some people a rash, but information provided by the city engineer's office shows Valparaiso's first roundabout is doing what officials hoped it would do.
VALPARAISO | A change in plans for Burlington Beach Road was welcome news for 11 residents at Tuesday's Redevelopment Commission meeting.
VALPARAISO | The intersection of Vale Park Road and Silhavy Road will be closed at 7 a.m. Wednesday through Friday at 5 p.m. for asphalt paving.
VALPARAISO | Silhavy Road will be closed north of the Vale Park roundabout from Friday to June 4 for the final phase of roundabout work.
VALPARAISO | To make sure the new interchange at Vale Park Road and Ind. 49 is as pretty as possible, the city Redevelopment Commission on Wednesday approved up to $200,000 for enhancements to the state project.
VALPARAISO | When you have more projects to do than you can afford, the first thing you do is prioritize what needs to be done.
VALPARAISO | Silhavy Road will be closed Monday through Wednesday from Vale Park Road to Glendale Boulevard for sanitary sewer installation.
VALPARAISO | The names stay pretty much the same. Only the order in which they appear changes each year for Valparaiso's list of the 10 most dangerous intersections.
