Kieffer Road Widening

LAPORTE COUNTY, IN—For this added travel lane project, BLN did the design for the widening of Kieffer Road/CR 400 N from a 2-lane section to a 4/5-lane section. The work included a mix of shoulders with ditches, curb and gutter, and an enclosed storm sewer system.

The Environmental Engineering department designed relocations and reconnections of one of the City's major transmission mains. Several of the reconnections involved multi-phased reconnection strategies to keep the main in operation without interrupting customer service. The project included 3,150 lineal feet of 20" DI water main and 150' of a 36" highway bore.
