January 13, 2023 - Beginning Monday, January 16, East Superior Street between Lafayette and Clinton streets will have lane restrictions for the construction of a consolidation sewer and stormwater sewer.
Beginning at 7:30 am Monday:
- One westbound lane will be open in the block between Lafayette and Barr streets.
- Between Barr and Clinton, one travel lane will be open in each direction.
- The intersection at Superior and Barr will remain open.
Beginning next week, NIPSCO will be removing abandoned gas mains to make room for a consolidation sewer pipe that will transport combined sewage to the deep rock tunnel. The NIPSCO work will take about 3-4 weeks before sewer construction begins. When complete, the line will keep just over 12 million gallons of sewage out of the St. Marys River. The construction of a separate stormwater pipe is also part of this project.
The restrictions will remain in place through early May.
