Happenings: Ind. 18 road work, sobriety checkpoint, 5/10K run

Chip and seal to start on Ind. 18

WHITE COUNTY – Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews will begin a pavement preservation project on Ind. 18 today or sometime soon, weather permitting. Ind. 18 from U.S. 231 to Ind. 43 will be chip sealed.

Traffic will be controlled by arrow boards and flagmen in the area where crews will be working. Work on the roadway is scheduled to last through Aug. 22. The work schedule is subject to change in the event of inclement weather.

Drivers should exercise caution during the construction of these projects. Loose stone will be present on the roadway during the initial cure of the asphalt and can damage windshields and paint on vehicles following each other too closely. It is recommended when travelling on a recently chip-sealed road to slow down and allow additional space between vehicles.

WRE to have Hap’s chicken bash

The community is invited to Weekday Religious Education’s Hap’s Chicken Bash from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Sept. 25 at the McHale Complex at Riverside Park. Free carousel rides will also be available from 5 to 6:45 p.m. to those who come for the dinner.

Tickets are $8.50 for adults and $4 for children ages 8 and under. To better serve the community and have plenty of chicken available, WRE asks that you purchase your tickets early and in advance. Tickets are available from Steve Farrer – 574-643-9472, or Joyce Leach – 574-753-4596 or 574-870-1640.

State police to set up checkpoint

PERU – Friday evening, officers from the Indiana State Police Peru Post will conduct an enforcement checkpoint targeting impaired drivers in Miami County.

After the checkpoint, troopers will conduct roving saturation patrols aggressively seeking impaired drivers throughout the Indiana State Police Peru District which covers Cass, Fulton, Grant, Miami, Howard, Tipton and Wabash Counties.

The purpose of enforcement checkpoints is to remove impaired drivers from Indiana roadways before they cause needless pain, suffering, or death to innocent victims.
