ELKHART — Oakland Avenue reopened for traffic this week, although the city is planning an official ribbon cutting today.

Oakland closed at its intersections with both sides of Indiana Avenue through the underpass this summer.

The road was lowered 6 inches to create more clearance for the underpass and replaced with a new concrete road, handicapped-accessible ramps and sidewalks. The concrete bases around the pillars supporting the bridge were also replaced.

Median barriers also were put in place along the sides of the underpass. A new storm sewer was installed and drainage improved.

Selge Construction was the contractor.
