[INDOT - Northeast] Public Hearing - Proposed Bridge Project at CR 29 over US 6, Elkhart County
Start Date: 8/26/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 8/28/2013End Time: 8:00 PM
Entry Description
ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that a public hearing for the proposed bridge project at CR 29 over US 6 will be held on Wednesday, August 28, at 6:00 p.m., at the Wawasee High School Auditorium, 1 Warrior Path, Building 1 (main entrance door #1), Syracuse, Ind. The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the environmental document and preliminary design plans for a new bridge to carry CR 29 over US 6, located in Elkhart County.

The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce the accident frequency and severity at the intersection of US 6 and CR 29. Construction of the project will require approximately 10.9 acres of new permanent right-of-way. No displacement of residents or businesses will be involved with this project. Traffic on US 6 will be maintained during construction, with shoulder restrictions anticipated during construction of the proposed bridge abutments; however, short-term closures are anticipated during the bridge beam placement. Due to the closure of CR 29, the proposed maintenance of traffic would require local traffic to be detoured using the routes of SR 13 (CR 33) and CR 46.

Preliminary design plans, along with the environmental document, are avail¬able for review at the following locations:

1. Hearings Examiner, Room N642, Indiana Government Center North, 100 North Senate
Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204 2216, Phone # (317) 234 0796
2. Planning & Programming Department, Indiana Department of Transportation Fort Wayne
District office at, 5333 Hatfield Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46808, Phone # (866) 227-3555
3. Syracuse Public Library, 115 East Main Street, Syracuse, IN 46567
Phone # (574) 457-3022

The public hearing serves as the opportunity for the public to comment on both the Categorical Exclusion (CE) environmental document and to view and comment on the preliminary plans. All comments collected before, during and two weeks after the hearing will be taken into consideration. The tentative timetables for right-of-way acqui¬sition and construction will be discussed during the formal presentation. Public statements for the record will be taken after the presentation. Individuals interested in participating in the public statement session may sign the speaker’s schedule prior to the presentation. The preliminary plans will be available for anyone interested in talking to the engineers about the project before and after the formal presentation. Please note these conversations will not be part of the official record. Any point of concern or suggestion must be submitted in writing during the comment period or as a statement on record at the public hearing.
