(La Porte, IN) - A major road project through downtown LaPorte is set to begin Monday. In May, Lincolnway will be repaved from Boyd Blvd. to SR 39. On Monday set-up work will begin to prepare for the resurfacing.
According to Indiana Department of Transportation spokesperson Cassandra Bajek, "These first few weeks are just going to be preliminary maintenance activities to get the road ready." Bajek says work will focus on curbs and sidewalks. Lane closures in the project's early stages should be minimal.
Towards the end of May, night time paving will begin, taking place between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Lane closures will happen at that time, with flaggers directing traffic through town. INDOT says the work is being scheduled at night to reduce traffic disruptions during the day.
They expect the project be done in late September.
