Monroe Manor Flood Relief Nears Finish Line

(La Porte, IN) - A major storm water relief project in La Porte will be getting underway in the coming weeks.


New curbs, sidewalks and street resurfacing is also included in the work planned at Monroe Manor.


The first phase of the storm water sewer separation project at the large subdivision off Monroe St. on the city’s southeast side was performed about five years ago.


Waste Water Department Superintendent Jerry Jackson says the upcoming project is currently being advertised for bids.


Jackson said problems with standing water and basement back-ups were mostly solved for about half of the residents in the subdivision from the initial project.


“It’s not perfect but it’s considerably better now,” he said.


Jackson said the work estimated at three million dollars could begin in early June and will be completed either by the end of the year or next year.
