Site preparation continues for the new LaPorte Hospital, undeterred so far by wintry weather.

In the next major development, workers will tie city sanitary and water lines to the State Street mains, laying the infrastructure for the sanitary and water supplies to the new facility. Temporary street closures are needed for this work, as it requires substantial street excavation:

— State Street will be closed between Teegarden and Tyler streets Nov. 26 and 27. Drivers should detour using Teegarden, Lincolnway and Tyler.

— Tyler Street will be closed between Lake and State streets Nov. 28 and 29. Drivers should detour using Lincolnway, Madison Street and Lake Street.

Dyer Construction Company out of Dyer, IN, will complete the work.

Other contracts awarded for the new LaPorte Hospital so far include Security Industries out of Hobart for fencing; Larson-Danielson out of LaPorte for concrete; Wilson Iron Works out of Crown Point for steel; and Helitech Civil Construction out of Caseville, Ill., for rammed aggregate piers.
