New sidewalks part of the North Street revitalization

Updated: January 22, 2013 12:20PM



CROWN POINT — The Redevelopment Commission on Jan. 14 approved a plan presented by City Engineer Tris Miles for adding sidewalks and sanitary sewer lines at North Street and Indiana Avenue.

Miles reminded the commissioners that in 2012 they had designated this area, along North Street, as a redevelopment and revitalization project.

“We also received federal funding for the North Street project,” Miles said.

The federal money allowed the widening of North Street from Broadway through the entrances to the Sportsplex and for work all the way to Main Street after the opening of the interchange at Interstate 65 and 109th Avenue.

Federal money was also used for the 109th Avenue work done between the interchange and Broadway.

The sanitary sewer lines will go under the parkway between the curb and the new sidewalks.

The new sidewalk will be on the northwest corner of Indiana Avenue and North Street. The sidewalk will go along the west side of Indiana Avenue from North Street to Porter Street and also along the north side of North Street from Indiana Avenue heading west, intending to continue to the rest of the sidewalk on North Street.

A Family Express gas station and store is being built on the northwest corner of the intersection.
