MISSISSIPPI STREET ROAD CLOSURE - 93RD AVENUE TO 101ST AVENUE

The Merrillville Stormwater Utility office is announcing a two-day road closure for next week in connection with a storm sewer repair project on those days.

Mississippi Street from the 93rd Avenue to 101st Avenue will be closed from Wednesday, November 4, and possibly Thursday, November 5, 2015, to replace a stormwater culvert crossing Mississippi Street just north of 101st Avenue. 

During this time, Mississippi Street will be open to emergency vehicles and residents only, who will be allowed access from the north at 93rd Avenue; road closure and detour signs will be installed for other motorists.

It is recommended that motorists use the recommended detours for 93rd Avenue and 101st Avenue (Broadway to the west and Colorado Street to the east) to get to their destinations during those days.  Drivers and residents are asked to use caution when traveling near this work site.
