The public will be able to sound off and ask questions at a meeting later this month on plans to install a roundabout at the S.R. 19-S.R. 119 intersection south of Wakarusa.

The Indiana Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting on the plans on Aug. 21 at the NorthWood High School auditorium, 2101 N. Main St., Nappanee. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and a presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m.

“The purpose of this meeting is to introduce this proposed project to the community and more importantly, to receive public input, address questions, comments and concerns,” INDOT said in a press release. Maps and displays featuring the plans will be up and INDOT reps will be on hand to discuss and explain the project.

Contact Rickie Clark of INDOT’s office of public involvement at 317-232-6601 or rclark@indot.in.gov for more information.

The preliminary price tag for the roundabout is $3 million. Currently, a traffic light regulates traffic flow at the S.R. 19-S.R. 119 crossing, located in southwest Elkhart County.
