(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte street is going to be closed tomorrow. Weller Avenue will be closed from Pine Lake Avenue to Willow Street. The purpose to remove a blockage from a drain under the Weller Avenue bridge.
Originally, the work was supposed to happen a week ago. However, it was rescheduled because of work that closed the US 35 overpass last week for a day. La Porte Waste Water Department Superintendent Jerry Jackson said he didn’t want two streets closure to happen at the same time and this week happens to be spring break. He said spring break means no buses and parents going to and from Riley Elementary School on Weller Avenue during the closure.
Jackson said Stone and Pine Lakes cannot be lowered because of the clog probably made of sticks and sediment build up. He expects tomorrow’s job to be finished the same day.
