This is an update on the continuing construction project in the Village of Black Creek.

The Village has completed our utility/underground portion of the construction project.

We have been informed by the State D.O.T. that they will be starting on their portion of the project on May 15, 2023. This work will consist of Storm sewer repairs, replacement of the curb ramps/crossings, traffic light upgrades, and repaving of the Hwy 54 and Hwy 47 intersection.

The Hwy 47 closure for this work is expected to last from May 15th through July 17th.  This will be a complete closure of the intersection of STH 47/Main St and STH 54/State St. The closure of STH 54/State St. from Clark St to Mary St, is still in effect during this time.

The official detour route for this project will be,

NORTH BOUND; Hwy B East to Hwy PP North to Hwy 54 East to Hwy 55 North to Hwy G West to Hwy 47 North.

SOUTH BOUND; Hwy G East to Hwy 55 South to Hwy 54 West to Hwy PP South to Hwy B West to Hwy 47 South.

The village understands the hardship this will cause for local business and residences, but we have no control over the time frame set by the State D.O.T.

Thank you,

Steve Hackl
