Elkhart road construction update

ELKHART, July 25, 2013--Elkhart residents have noticed an increase of road construction lately, and according to City Secretary Donna Surber, it’s not likely to end any time soon.

Surber says the new culverts have been completed in many areas, but more road construction is on its way. Construction on major traffic roads such as Gammage Street, will hopefully be completed by the time school starts in order to keep traffic back-ups at a minimum.

Surber says half of downtown will also be receiving new sidewalks, thanks to a Downtown Revitalization Grant received by the City last year.

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Surber about the construction, as well as the upcoming Keep Elkhart Beautiful meeting, and possible plans for a butterfly garden. Click below for more.
