Paving of 53rd Street to Begin Monday

Paving of 53rd St. to Begin Monday

Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that the paving of 53rd will begin on Monday, August 12th. Paving will begin on 53rd St. at the intersection of Scatterfield Rd. and 53rd St. and will proceed west on the north side of Scatterfield to Columbus Ave. The following day, the paving is expected to begin on the south side of 53rd and proceed east to Scatterfield. The 53rd St. paving project began earlier this summer with ADA compliant ramps being placed at the intersections and the removal of the island at 53rd St. and Columbus Ave.
The paving project will continue in a like manner from Columbus Ave. to Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. until completed. The entire project is expected to take three weeks subject to weather conditions. The city will provide updates of the paving location on its website and Facebook page. The mayor urged motorists to take alternate roots when possible and when driving in the construction area to be cautious and on the look out for workers.
This project is made possible by the city’s success in receiving an award of $1 million in matching funds from the Indiana Department of Transportation and the use of $1 million from wheel tax.
Mayor Broderick stated, “We are pleased that the city, working with the city engineer’s office, was able to secure these funds in order to be able to continue to improve our local roads and to be able to match with our wheel tax dollars. We are proud of our on-going effort to pave this summer using both contract paving and street department employees.”
The city has previously announced a list of streets that have been bid out for contract paving. Those paving projects will commence immediately following the completion of the 53rd St. paving project. Additionally, city employee paving is also taking place throughout the city during the same time period. 53rd paving
