Silhavy-LaPorte Roundabout Project Entering Final Phases

In Valparaiso, city officials say the Silhavy-LaPorte roundabout project is about to enter its final phases, remaining on schedule to be a functional roundabout by the end of this month. The next phase underway now requires some new restrictions for northbound and southbound travel starting last night and continuing through about November 27. Surrounding businesses will remain open.

“We’re pleased with the progress and eager to beat the weather as we enter this final phase of construction. The early cold has been a challenge as some materials require warmer temps. Drivers are excited to see that it’s a circle now and we appreciate their patience as we near completion,” said Don McGinley, Valparaiso’s Director of Project and Facility Management.

The new roundabout will move about 35,000 vehicles per day, using a two-lane design with four legs. For more information about how to drive a roundabout, visit Valpo.us and search “how to drive a roundabout” to find both a diagram and a video demonstration.
