Downtown South Bend roads getting a face lift

Driving in some parts of Downtown South Bend got complicated last summer and went on for months. Construction had drivers rerouted. The city spent millions on upgrading its sewer system after a collapse in July.

To avoid further interruptions later on, officials decided to go ahead and enhance the roadways and sidewalks, too.

The Downtown roads are now fully operational, including Michigan Street, which was running on limited lanes for a while.

“So I think folks who visit that part of town will notice the improvement,” says South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. “There was a lot of construction, there were a lot of diversions and little bit of frustration. We got it done. It's over and now that part of downtown is very much open for business.”

The Mayor says it is all part of his plan to revitalize the Downtown area.
