Portage  is a city in Portage Township.  It is located in Porter County, Indiana.  The population was 37,941 as of the 2011 census.  It is the largest city in Porter County, and third largest in Northwest Indiana.


National Steel opened a plant along the shore of Lake Michigan in Portage in 1959.  This brought in about 2,000 new jobs.  The Port of Indiana was also built in 1961 to accommodate trade with the world via Lake Michigan.


In 1963, Bethlehem Steel began construction of a plant which was located partly in Portage.  This project brought about 7,000 jobs to the area.


In 1959, Portage was incorporated as a town.  Ogden Dunes and South Haven were excluded because the residents of these areas did not want to be included in the town.


Due to the increase in population after the war, many farmers were selling land to be subdivided into lots for families to build homes.  In 1967, Portage became a city.

  • 5 Steps in handling your personal injury case

    #1.  Get immediate medical care The extent of your  injuries or of others is very hard to diagnose at the time of your incident.  Serious injuries  may or may not result in immediate pain or discomfort. Call 911 or emergency  services after any serious accident or injury.

  • Do not make any conclusive statements

    #2.  At the time or your accident  or injury it is common try to  analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of  their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.

  • Cooperate with emergency authorities

    #3.  Cooperate with  medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information.  Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).

  • Contact an attorney to review your injury case

    #4.  Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney.  Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.

  • Be Patient - Follow medical care directives

    #5.  Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose. One painful  injury can mask a completely different and more serious injury.  If you experience any medical issues after your incident contact a medical professional immediately. Keep all incident and medical records for your attorney's review.
