Munster: Columbia Bridge Closed
August 9, 2013 — The Munster Police Department is asking residents to plan ahead when traveling near the Columbia Bridge.
Police say the bridge closed today for the Little League World Series this weekend in Hammond at the adjacent athletic complex.
The bridge will then remain closed through November for construction.
Town of Munster officials say Lake County, Little Calumet River Basin Commission, City of Hammond and Town of Munster are collaborating to rebuild the bridge so that it is above flood stage and does not flood during high water events.
Drivers are encouraged to use Calumet Avenue or Indianapolis Boulevard as alternates. Drivers are also asked to avoid the construction area and neighboring residential streets.
