PIKE STREET (US 33) TO REOPEN FROM THIRD TO MAIN STREETS

Rieth-Riley Construction will be ready to open Pike Street up between Third and Main streets Thursday afternoon, Oct. 19, after the signal work is completed.

This is exciting news as it will open up another traffic pattern for the City and allow better access to the neighborhoods north of Pike Street. As fall approaches, the City, the State and our contractors are trying to return traffic back to some semblance of normalcy before winter weather sets in.

A big thanks to the Indiana Department of Transportation and Rieth-Riley for their diligence in getting this project completed well within their deadline.
