The Monticello Street Department will be milling many of the alleys in the city on August 7 & 8, followed by two layers of chip/seal. In preparation for the large machinery required to do this project, the Street Department will be trimming all trees and shrubs that are in the right of way, so the machines can get through.
The City of Monticello Street Dept. will begin spraying for mosquitos on Tuesday July 25, 2023 weather permitting, if weather will not allow us to spray that evening, then spraying will be moved to the next evening. The Street Dept. will spray the City limits once a week as weather allows for the next several weeks. Spraying will be done during the evening hours. The spray trucks will spray the alleys where available and the streets where there is no alley. If you do not want the area by your home sprayed please call the Monticello Street Dept. at (574) 583- 7033.
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has stated due to the traffic problems caused by the NIPSCo gas line relocation at Gordon Rd., Airport Rd., and US-421, the decision has been made to close Gordon and Airport Roads at that intersection.
- Gordon and Airport Rd. Intersection will be closed.
- Affected residents south of the intersection may use new County Rd. 225 S to enter/exit the area.
- The traffic lights will be bagged and South Main/US-421 will be free flowing traffic with some lane restrictions as work progresses.
We do not have an exact day when this will happen, within the next two weeks, and could last as long as 2 months.
