Burr Street construction on schedule


SCHERERVILLE — Construction of a southbound section of Burr Street in Schererville is on schedule to finish in two to three weeks, officials said. 

Burr Street construction began April 29, closing the southbound section of the road from U.S. 30 to 75th Avenue.

After construction is complete on the southbound side of the road, it will move to the northbound side. Traffic will be restricted to southbound only.

Construction was delayed slightly when crews uncovered NIPSCO gas lines that were not in the designs, officials said. The lines needed to be moved out of the way to put a water main through.
