Changes coming to "5 Points" construction zone


We have an update to the Five Points road project in South Bend.

Beginning Wednesday, State Road 23 traffic will be shifted to the newly completed lanes, so traffic will have one lane in each direction.

As a result, three roads will be closed.

Those will be South Bend Avenue between Notre Dame Avenue and Frances Street, Twyckenham Drive at SR 23 and the intersection of Eddy and Howard Streets.

"We know they're frustrated, it's an inconvenience and we don't like that. But at the same token coming up when this project is complete, it's going to much more efficient a safer road to travel," says Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Matt Deitchley.

These roads will be closed until at least October.
