Lincoln Avenue Notice Intersection Closure
Monday, February 04, 2019

The 5th & Lincoln Avenue intersection will be closed from February 4th for approximately two months to install storm sewer pipe as well as lower water lines and install inlets.  The project continues north on Lincoln Avenue to 1st street with a new trunk line so there will be additional block closures North as the project continues.  The contractor, King’s Trucking will be working as fast as possible to get this intersection opened back up.  
With the Lincoln Avenue storm water project there will be inconveniences for larger trucks that may make deliveries in town to the north end.  The alternate route on 4th Street entering and exiting on S and M street as a way to get larger vehicles around the Lincoln Avenue Intersection will be used. There will be temporary no parking along different sections of 4th Street.  This is a much needed infrastructure improvement to remove the storm water on the north end of town that was included in our approved compliance plan with Indiana Department of Environmental Management to reduce or prevent sanitary sewer inflow and infiltration to Spider Creek lift station with the goal with other projects to eliminate prohibited sanitary sewer overflows.  We will compile an email list to get information out as needed for businesses and residents in the area if you would like to give me an email address to send updates.  My email is if you want to send me your email.  If you have any concerns or questions please contact me at 812-278-4371 or Mike Reynolds who is the storm water coordinator at 812-788-0303.  All businesses remain open during construction. Please drive carefully in this area.
