On Monday, Cedar Lake has joined other Lake county communities in designating a portion of US-41 as a Purple Heart Corridor. Ian Nicolini, Town Administrator says the honor is a privilege and "really neat to be part of something that's so much bigger than a town, so much bigger than the Region." Nicolini says it is a really neat project to be part of and that the council was fully behind it "especially Ward 6 council member, Patsy Casassa." Nicolini says the Purple Heart Corridor is "a great opportunity to show " Cedar Lake's "dedication to the people that dedicate so much to us."
The dedication ceremony reportedly commenced at 2pm at US-41 and 125th Avenue. An article by Times Correspondent, Mary Wilds reported that the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Hammond Chapter 721 installed the special Purple Heart signs.
