Lane Restriction Now In Place Along 54th Ave in Merrillville

Share this post

Motorists speeding on 54th Avenue in Merrillville through the storm sewer reconstruction project have caused officials to announce lane restrictions effective immediately to ensure the safety of workers and residents. The five-block area of the project on 54th Avenue will now be open to local residential traffic only, as well as daily mail delivery, and will take place after school buses have had their morning runs. Officials say block closures will begin no earlier than 7am to 3:30 pm daily, and that the road will be open to all traffic by 4pm each day. As the project moves east to Lincoln, Buchanan, Pierce, and Fillmore Streets, those segments will be closed when workers are at those locations. Meantime, it is recommended motorists who normally use 54th Avenue use 57th Avenue instead. The project is anticipated to be completed by the end of August or early September.
