WARSAW — Kosciusko County Commissioners have formally approved allocating money to match with a grant the county is applying for to help with road repaving.
At their meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 2, commissioners approved a request from Kosciusko County Highway Department Superintendent Steve Moriarty for funds to match an Indiana Department of Transportation Community Crossings Matching Grant the county is applying for.
Commissioners approved allocating up to $1,105,326.50 as a match for the potential funds. Moriarty said plans are to repave Pierceton Road from Winona Lake’s city limits to Pierceton’s city limits and East Old Road 30 from CR 450E to SR 13.
In other business, commissioners:
- Approved lowering the speed limit on CR 750E from Armstrong Road to the North Webster city limits from 55 mph to 35 mph. That’s to help drivers slow down before they near the school zone speed of 20 mph in the area, explained Moriarty.
The commissioners’ next meeting is 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Kosciusko County Courthouse’s Old Courtroom.
