Broadway Street and Main Street Reconstruction

East Chicago, Indiana

This $2.3 million, locally funded project consisted of a multi-phased reconstruction of Main Street and Broadway Street. Phases 1-A and 1-B reconstructed Main Street from Broadway Street to Martin Luther King Drive, and Phase 1-C reconstructed Broadway Street from Main Street to Pulaski Street. An extensive streetscape design was incorporated into the existing tight urban corridors to improve the aesthetic appeal of this business district. Decorative lighting, landscape plantings, tree wells, tree grates, tree guards, wayfinding signage, decorative crosswalks, and patterned concrete surfaces were used to create a more welcoming environment. Pedestrian and ADA-related mobility were important considerations during the design process.
