Drivers are asked to use Washington Street as a detour, while Campbell Street is closed for construction.

Campbell Street in Valparaiso will be closed near the future Journeyman Distillery site, starting Monday. Campbell will be closed between Brown and Boundary through mid-July.

"Various improvements associated with this are sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water main and road construction. Due to the depth of the sanitary sewer construction, we felt it was necessary for both safety and cost to have a full road closure," Max Rehlander, deputy city engineer, told the board of works earlier this month

The project will also include sidewalk upgrades and a new bike trail, according to the Valparaiso Now Facebook page, "to promote growth and pedestrian access to the Downtown Barrel District."

Drivers are asked to use Washington as a detour, but truck traffic should use Sturdy Road.
