(BEDFORD) – The intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Sixth Street is now open.
According to Bedford City Utilities Director, Misty Adams, when paving season begins the intersection will be repaired.
The Fifth Street intersection remains closed.
The road is closed for installing of storm sewer pipes and lower water lines at the intersection of 5th Street and Lincoln Avenue.
The project continues north on Lincoln Avenue to First Street with a new trunk line so there will be additional block closures North as the project continues.
The contractor, King’s Trucking, is working as fast as possible to get this intersection back open.
Misty Adams, Bedford City Utilities Director says “this is a much-needed infrastructure improvement to remove the stormwater on the north end of town that was included in our approved compliance plan with Indiana Department of Environmental Management to reduce or prevent sanitary sewer inflow and infiltration to Spider Creek lift station with the goal with other projects to eliminate prohibited sanitary sewer overflows.”
