The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rep. Pete Visclosky (IN-1), Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, and the Gary Sanitary District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of a sewer improvement project in the Ambridge area of Gary:

WHERE: South Shore Health Center, 353 Tyler St. (Tyler St. and West 3rd Ave.), Gary, IN 46402

TIME: 10:30 a.m.

The completed project will include rehabilitating over 16,600 feet of sewers in the Ambridge area. The pipes are in dire need of repair and lining the sewer lines will significantly reduce basement backups and overflows. This project has been allocated $1,750,000 in federal funding.
