State Road 19 traffic to slow dramatically for one-day project


State Road 19, also known as Nappanee Street, has been causing problems for Elkhart drivers for months now. But you'll definitely want to avoid it on Wednesday.

A new phase of the project will take place near the Franklin Street intersection. Contractors there will be removing asphalt crossover pavement. Flaggers will help drivers navigate through the area.

There are not many good alternative routes to take in the area, but some ideas include Ash Road to the west and Oakland Avenue to the east.

The good news is crews expect to be done with this phase of the project by the end of Wednesday, but there is still plenty of construction on State Road 19 that will continue even when this phase is over.
