[INDOT - Northeast] Pennsylvania Avenue Intersection East of SR 19 in Elkhart to Close This Week
Start Date: 11/4/2013 All Day
End Date: 11/5/2013
Entry Description
ELKHART, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that Pennsylvania Avenue east of SR 19/Nappanee Street in Elkhart is scheduled for closure, beginning Monday or Tuesday, November 4 or 5, as part of the SR 19 road construction project. The intersection closure, which is required for the contractor to reconstruct the approaches to SR 19 and add improved drainage features, is expected to end in mid-December, weather permitting. The actual date of the closure is dependent on drying time required for the 16-foot center lane on SR 19 between Franklin Street and Vermont Street.

The eastern leg of Vermont Street, which has been closed during SR 19 construction, is expected to open on the same day that Pennsylvania Avenue closes. Driveway accesses to businesses on the east side of SR 19, between Indiana Avenue and Vermont Street, are also expected to open at that time.

The SR 19 reconstruction project consists of complete pavement replacement from Lusher Avenue to Beardsley Avenue to accommodate a 5-lane concrete roadway with a bi-directional turn lane. This will match the portions of SR 19 north of Beardsley Avenue and south of Lusher Avenue. The project will also include rehabilitation of the bridge over the St. Joseph River; installation of sidewalks; curb and gutter; ADA ramps; storm sewer system; new traffic signals; and pedestrian crosswalks with pushbuttons at Franklin Street, Indiana Avenue, Lexington Avenue, and Bypass Road.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT, visit You can find traffic restriction information at Contact the Fort Wayne District toll free at 866-227-3555.
