The planning phase for a long-awaited overpass project on Hively Avenue in Elkhart is underway and officials are looking for the public’s feedback. The city of Elkhart and INDOT will be hosting a Zoom meeting tonight and an open house for in person interaction Thursday. Corinne Straight-Reed is the Director of Communications for the city and she explained what people could expect in these meetings.
“We will be presenting the public with the reasons behind this project, where the funding
is coming from, what the construction timeline looks like as well as giving them a few
different options of the exact layout of the overpass that the public will be able to give
input on,” Straight-Reed said.
Tonight’s virtual Zoom meeting will begin at 5:00.
