Resurfacing of Indiana 23 begins Monday
Edison project also set to start.


Tribune Staff Report

SOUTH BEND — Traffic will be slowed for the next four months on a two-mile stretch of Indiana 23, state transportation officials announced this week.

Sections of the road will be restricted to one lane in each direction beginning Monday between Main Street south of downtown and Campeau Street south of the Five Points intersection in the northeast part of the city, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

That section of Indiana 23 is named Sample Street west of the St. Joseph River and Eddy Street east of the river.

InDOT expects the resurfacing construction to continue through July, depending on weather.

The $874,000 project is being paid for with money from the federal government's economic stimulus bill approved last year.

Edison Road

Resurfacing on Edison Road between Hickory Road and Ironwood Drive is also scheduled to start Monday, said Marcia Qualls, customer service coordinator for the city's Department of Public Works.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction.

Qualls said crews are expected to finish paving the one-mile section of road by April 14, weather permitting.

Workers will also repair a sewer that caved in on Edison Road between Gordon and Rockne drives, she said.

The Edison Road project is the first of 15 street segments in the city that will be resurfaced this year thanks to stimulus money.

Resurfacing on Twyckenham Drive between Rockne Drive and South Bend Avenue is tentatively scheduled to be next on the list after the Edison project is completed, Qualls said.

Part of Cleveland Road to be closed



GRANGER -- Crews from Northern Indiana Public Service Co. will close Cleveland Road west of Fir Road today as they complete the relocation of their facilities for the upcoming intersection improvement project there.

Crews will begin the closure at 9 a.m. while they retire the existing 8-inch gas main that runs across Cleveland Road. They anticipate the closure to be in effect throughout the day and reopening Cleveland as darkness falls.

A detour route will be posted and consists of the following:
Westbound drivers will be directed north on Fir to Indiana 23, then west to the intersection of Cleveland Road and Indiana 23.


Eastbound drivers will be informed of the closure in advance and experience the closure at the intersection of Indiana 23 and Cleveland Roads. They will be directed to continue east on Indiana 23 until reaching Fir Road, at which point they can turn south on Fir to reach Cleveland Road.

This is stupid scheduling.Why don't they be good to the employees and the city by reversing the schedule from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am. Less traffic and less heat. Sounds like a win win for everyone.

If that was their normal shift, working overnight would make sense. Too bad it doesn't work that way.

While it may not be a "normal" shift working overnight with a schedule shift should be doable. Someone wants the work.

I thought you were aware of the clause in the government employee handbook that forbids doing anything that would make sense, bdcbbq...
