It's About Time!

West 79th Street in Indy's Pike Township -- from Noel Road to Fox Run Road -- will be closed for repairs Thursday (14 February) through 1 March.

The work along West 79th Street is a road stabilization project, which includes improvements planned for the road foundation and adjacent bank as well as road repairs and resurfacing.

This Indianapolis Observer (who drives West 79th Street often) is relieved. For years, the north side of the pavement has been subsiding into the Eagle Creek Valley -- more so in the past few months.

It's almost a sheer drop to the valley floor where the pavement has failed. Driving over the stopgap measure of metal plates has been worrying (as the pavement continues to slip). A more permanent repair will be welcomed.
