Work Begins on Calumet Avenue Bridge Project

rot5Mayor Thomas M. McDermott, Jr. and the Hammond Port Authority are excited to announce the commencement of construction on the Calumet Avenue Bridge.

Beginning Friday, October 6th, a small portion of the George Lake Trail from the Environmental Education Center south to the 125th Trail will be closed for construction. The crosswalk on the west side of 125th Street and the small parking lot on the east side of 125th and Calumet Avenue will also close as a safety precaution.

The remainder of trails and parking lots will remain open until further notice. The launch ramp is also scheduled to remain open until the end of the season.

This bridge will offer a safe means for pedestrians and cyclists to cross Calumet Avenue. The bridge is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2018.
