MICHIGAN CITY — Segments of 14 local streets stretching 4.5 miles in total may be repaved soon, as Michigan City recently received a Community Crossings Local Roads and Bridges Matching Grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation.

The project cost is anticipated to be $1.55 million; making the grant from INDOT – $775,218.89 – as long as the city is willing to put up an identical amount.

As with every year, The Maywood Subdivision is forgotten again. This subdivision has had water problems for all the years that I've lived here starting in 1994. The streets have been repaved over existing pavement to make the roads higher than some yards and the water makes ponds in the yards. There was a light shining when the Lafayette/Barker Ave project was to come to Maywood and install storm sewers and curbs, but the "Tunnel to Nowhere" project stopped as the monies went elsewhere. So, here we are ready to patch our own potholes again this year
