[INDOT] SR 19 Construction Begins South of St. Joseph River in Elkhart March 13
Start Date: 3/12/2013 All Day
End Date: 7/31/2013
Entry Description
ELKHART, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that work on the 2-mile SR 19 road reconstruction project is scheduled to resume south of the St. Joseph River for the 2013 construction season. Weather permitting, there will be a shift of traffic to the east side of SR 19, starting Wednesday, March 13, to accommodate construction on the west side of the road. Traffic will be restricted to one 10-ft-wide lane in each direction, northbound and southbound, between Lusher Avenue and the St. Joseph River.

Side streets along SR 19 in this area will be closed as necessary by the contractor through the construction season. It is anticipated that the west leg of Indiana Avenue will close at the end of March.

At the same time, work will resume on the east side of the bridge over the St. Joseph River, resulting in traffic being shifted to the west side of the road on the bridge, with one lane of traffic in each direction.

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.

Rieth-Riley Construction was awarded the contract based on the low bid of $14 million.

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.
