NIPSCO Cleaning Up On SR 2 in Lowell
(Downed building in Crown Point, just south of 93rd St, right off SB I-65)
NIPSCO crews are busy cleaning up after Wednesday night's storms that blew through the region, which downed power lines and toppled huge transformer towers just east of I-65. Our own Karl Berner spoke to a contracted worker through NIPSCO this morning in Lowell about the State Road 2 roadblock that goes down to Clay Street, and who stated that once the wires have been picked up off the roadway it will be reopened, which said could happen sometime this afternoon. The straight-line winds took down four electrical towers which destroyed high-voltage 345-thousand K-V lines.
It was just two years ago, almost to the day, that Route 2 was shut down between Lowell and Hebron after powerful storms came through and toppled huge transformer towers just east of I-65. To view the many pictures submitted to us from Region residents of the storm, visit anyone of our websites at http://www.regionnewsteam.com.
