“Infrastructure creates the form of a city and enables life to go on in a city, in a certain way.”

Paul Goldberger, American architectural critic

 

          The City of Jasper is focused on our infrastructure…annually investing more than $2,000,000 in streets and sidewalks with an equal amount put into utility and stormwater improvements.

          Over the course of the next year, we have a major project along U. S. 231. Starting now, we are upgrading a two-mile section of water line from 6th & Bartley to 30th & Newton to be followed in 2019 by repaving of the highway by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).

          Phase 1 will go from Bartley to 6th & Newton; Phase 2 will go from 6th & Newton to 15th & Newton; Phase 3 will go from Matthew Lane to 30th & Newton. You can expect some lane closures, traffic tie-ups and rough surfaces from time-to-time. Cars, pickups and SUVs may take alternate city streets.

          We simply ask you to use common courtesy while driving in and through our community. This is a much-needed investment in Jasper by our local, state and federal governments. We will be communicating along the way through news media, social media and www.jasperindiana.gov.

          Thank you for your patience.
