ELKHART COUNTY — INDOT contractors, Walsh and Kelly Inc., are planning several traffic shifts as work continues on the added travel lane project at C.R. 52 in Nappanee.
Beginning Monday, Aug. 1, weather pending, the center lane of S.R. 19 at C.R. 52 will be closed, with traffic shifted onto either side of the ongoing work.
Later this month, contractors will again shift traffic. This time drivers will be shifted to the newly constructed southbound lane and shoulder while the left turn lanes are built. During this phase of construction, the east leg of C.R. 52 will be closed to through-traffic. A 12-foot lane will be maintained on C.R. 52 for residents to access their homes.
An advisory speed of 45 miles per hour continues to be in effect through the construction zone. INDOT reminds drivers to use caution when traveling through any active construction zone.
The project is scheduled to be completed in early November, weather permitting. It is being constructed in conjunction with added left-turn lanes at C.R. 38.
The contract for the joint project was awarded to Walsh & Kelly, Inc., for $2.9 million.
