State Road 19 in Elkhart back to four lanes


Four lanes are now open from Beardsley to Lusher on State Road 19 in Elkhart.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, crews worked extra hours to reopen the four lanes.

It doesn't mean the work on State Road 19 is finished. Starting in the spring, traffic between Lusher and Franklin street will again go down to one lane for more construction.

Although the entire roadway was not completed this year, as the contractor had hoped to do, this contract is still ahead of schedule.  The entire project is now expected to be complete by June 2014, rather than August 2014.

When the State Road 19 project is completed, there will be two lanes in each direction and a center turn lane.
