The public can soon weigh in on a proposed project that would reconstruct Pike Street in Goshen from the Elkhart River Bridge to Third Street.
Proposed by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), the project would add a center turn lane, pavement reconstruction, an added left turn lane at Second Street, a concrete curb and gutter, sidewalks, signal improvements, storm water collection and driveway work, according to INDOT.
A public hearing for the project will be Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Goshen High School’s auditorium, 401 Lincolnway East. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for an informal open house session. The formal public hearing starts at 6 p.m.
The total project length is 0.184 mile and construction would require approximately 1.45 acres of new permanent right-of-way.
Plans may include the relocation of eleven parcels of land occupied by residential buildings and one parcel occupied by a business.
Special accommodations at the hearing can be made in advance for people with disabilities and/or limited English speaking ability. To do that, contact the public hearings office at 317-232-6601.
