GOSHEN, IN – September 8, 2016—Mayor Stutsman is releasing a progress report on construction projects, all part of a massive infrastructure improvement program in Goshen.
“While these projects will ultimately reduce traffic congestion and make our roads safer, the community may experience some delays during construction,” said Mayor Stutsman.
The following updates are being provided for major projects that could impact traffic flow:
South Link Road Project – Phend & Brown and JCI Bridge Group are 10 months ahead of schedule with construction, and they anticipate being complete with construction in early November 2016. The South Link Road/Waterford Mills Parkway connection to SR 15 will provide much needed traffic relief when complete, while the Kercher Road Bridge over the Elkhart River is closed for reconstruction.
CR 40 and SR 15 Traffic Signal Installation – Elkhart County and INDOT are working together on the traffic signal at this intersection and they hope to have the traffic signal in operation by mid- to late October 2016.
Kercher Road Bridge Reconstruction – Elkhart County and Rieth-Riley Construction will be closing Kercher Road from Orchard Drive to SR 15 on Tuesday, September 13, and the closure will remain in place until October 2017.
Plymouth Avenue Trail Crossing Modification Project – Walsh & Kelly Construction Company are working hard to get Plymouth Avenue/SR 119 re-opened to traffic on Tuesday, September 13. The remaining construction work will be done while the roadway is open to traffic. The anticipated completion date is mid-October 2016.
“I would strongly urge residents to review the map prepared by the Goshen Engineering Department which shows the location of these projects and alternative routes that should be considered”, said Stutsman. “In many cases, a little advanced planning will help residents avoid delays,” he added.
“Please remember to be considerate of the construction workers and fellow motorist and drive safely,” said Stutsman. “For the most up to date notices please like us on Facebook and sign up for email notices through our website, goshenindiana.org, these updates will come directly to your email,” he added.
