[INDOT - Northeast] US 20 Road Construction Scheduled to Begin Week of July 1
Start Date: 6/28/2013 All Day
End Date: 7/5/2013
Entry Description
ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that US 20, from CR 23 to SR 15 in Elkhart County, is scheduled to begin construction during the week of July 1, weather permitting.

There will be a width limit of 11 feet in the construction zone from approximately July 1 until mid-December 2013, as well as a reduced speed limit of 40 mph that will be in effect 24 hours a day during this period. Beginning later in the week of July 1, or early in the week of July 8, traffic is expected to shift to the north side of US 20 to allow Phase 1 construction in the eastbound lanes, on the south side of the road. Occasionally during Phase 1 construction, traffic may be split to accommodate center lane construction work. Motorists should be aware of arrow boards, cones and barrels to direct traffic, as well as merging construction traffic and shoulder work.

The US 20 added travel lanes project will take the existing two-lane facility to four lanes with a continuous center bi-directional left turn lane, except at the signalized intersection at SR 15 and at public cross streets, where it will have dedicated, striped left turn lanes. There will be 10-foot shoulders, with sections of 8-foot shoulders where there is curb and gutter. The existing corrugated metal pipe culvert at Getz Ditch will be replaced with a concrete box culvert with wing walls. The scheduled completion date for the project is in the fall of 2014. The contract was awarded to Niblock, based on the low bid of $9.8 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 www.in.gov/indot.
