2nd & Niblack Intersection Reconstruction Update

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ENGINEER

Work continues on the intersection of 2nd Street and Niblack Blvd. The intersection has been closed for reconstruction of the intersection, railroad crossing, bridge, and floodwall. Work was originally scheduled to be finished by November 7th, but delays are pushing that date back with completion now scheduled closer to Thanksgiving.  This is an INDOT Federal Aid job being constructed by Weddle Brothers and being inspected by The Lochmueller Group and overseen by the City Engineers Office.

The detour for 2nd Street is Executive Blvd. to 6th Street to Minneapolis Ave.  The detour for Niblack Blvd. is Oliphant Dr. to Minneapolis Ave.  A 4-way stop has been installed at the intersection of 2nd and Minneapolis.
