Council awards contract for the installation of a traffic light at 25th and Margaret | Local News


Morphey Construction of Indianapolis was awarded a $ 145,000 contract on Monday to install a new traffic light at the intersection of 25th Street and the southeast side of Margaret Avenue n Terre Haute.

Terre Haute’s Public Works and Safety Council awarded the contract after Josey Daugherty, a city staff engineer, said the bid was under budget for the project. Daugherty said the engineering department will meet with the company next month.

Work on the traffic lights is expected to be completed by the end of December. However, Daugherty said that estimate is based on delivering the equipment on time, which, if delayed, could delay completion until January.

The traffic light will go to an intersection at the east end of the Avenue Margaret de Terre Haute viaduct.

In other cases, the board of directors has approved a request for 12 Revitalization Points to close Maple Avenue from Lafayette Avenue to 13th Street and 13th Street from Maple Avenue to Phillips Avenue from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on November 13 for the “A Taste of 12 Points” event. The event will be held at the Gold Medal Plaza at 1295 Lafayette Ave.

The board also approved a request from Foursquare Gospel Church to close Elm Street between 12th and 13th Streets from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 31 during the church’s annual Harvest Party, which is expected to draw around 900 people. Council also approved a parking lane restriction near the intersection of 14½ Street and Lafayette Avenue for better visibility for motorists.
