Starke County Road 800 East will be closed for the next couple of months in order to accommodate a bridge replacement. LaPorte Construction Company submitted the lowest bid to replace the bridge over Eagle Creek. The project will cost the county about $300,000.
Starke County Highway Superintendent Rik Ritzler tells WKVI News 800 East is closed between 25 North and 50 South to accommodate the work. Detour signs are posted and direct motorists to use 700 East to get around the closure.
