Leaf Pickup

Please note that if the leaf truck goes by and your leaves are not at the curb at that time, they will not come back immediately to get them. They will finish with the rest of the town first, and then come back for those who had their leaves out after the truck has already been by. Thank you for your patience.

Ridge Road/37th Ave Paving Project

Ridge Rd/37th Ave Paving Project will begin Monday, November 13th, 2023 at 6am. The contractor will be starting on the outside (right) lanes and will have all of the intersections on the north and south side of the road closed during that portion of the construction project. The detour route will be to take Tyler St to Lake Park Ave to Ridge Rd. When coming into town from Ridge Rd, you will want to take Ridge Rd to Lake Park Ave to Tyler St.

New Chicago, Lake Station, and Hobart emergency services have all been notified of these closures to ensure that they take the appropriate routes to get to and from New Chicago as required.

The total expected length of time for the project is two weeks. The project scope is the repaving all lanes of Ridge Rd and also the replacement of ADA ramps at intersections that currently have them. All time frames for the project are weather dependent.

For more information, please contact the New Chicago Town Hall or the council person for your ward.
