Road Work Moves to Next Stage

(La Porte, IN) - The resurfacing of Pine Lake Avenue is moving right along.


New pavement is now being laid where old pavement was taken out while Improvements continue at the intersections.


Travel remains slow going at times in areas where the work is occurring especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours.


Police Chief Paul Brettin said things are also going smoothly from a law enforcement standpoint with officers issuing few tickets for speeding and other traffic violations.


“Our officers have been working some speed checks up there.  So far, there have been a few but nothing outrageous, which is good,” he said.


Brettin said drivers upset by the slow going at times should seek alternate routes to avoid the road construction.


“I know it’s a bottleneck.  I know people are getting frustrated but it appears it’s going to be done very soon.  They’re laying a lot of pavement there.  Just be patient,” he said.


The work is scheduled to be finished in early July.  The project was ordered by the Indiana Department of Transportation since Pine Lake Ave. is a state highway.
