Storm Water Project in Knox Ahead of Schedule

Construction work on the storm water project in Knox is ahead of schedule, according to Mayor Rick Chambers. The $837,000 project is taking place at three locations: John Street and Roosevelt Rd., John Street from McGill, and Prettyman Street to John Street. The work is to install storm water sewer lines and the work is being done by H & G Construction out of LaPorte.

The Mayor told the Knox City Council last week that he has received some complaints about noise in the construction area.

Most of the work, Chambers said, has been within the right of way, but once in awhile the contractors have encroached on someone’s property. He promised that any damage that is done to yards or driveways will be corrected before the contractors finish the work. The Mayor encourages citizens who notice damage to contact him at his office.
