Public Meeting on U.S. 35 Reconstruction

(La Porte, IN) - A public hearing has been scheduled for March 6th in La Porte regarding plans to replace water and sewer lines beneath U.S. 35 and repave the highway.


The work is scheduled to occur this year from just south of Lincolnway to Kingsbury Avenue. According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, the highway will be closed to traffic in phases during the anticipated two-year construction period.


“When a particular intersection is closed for construction, side streets will be maintained for local access,” INDOT said.


Federal and local dollars will reportedly be used on the multi-million dollar project.  The public meeting, to be hosted by INDOT from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., is scheduled for March 6th at the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte at 140 E. Shore Parkway.


The purpose of the meeting is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the project. Any public statements will be included, with written responses from the project to be evaluated, considered, and addressed during the process leading up to construction.
