ELKHART — An Elkhart Traffic Department crew continued work on Harrison Street in preparation for the street to become a two-way street later this month.
The city has stated the switch will occur by Labor Day, but hopes to complete the project prior to then.
The change is intended to alleviate traffic backups downtown near the railroad crossing at Main Street.
Changes to Harrison Street will also affect mail collection at the Elkhart post office, according to Jack Vergonet, delivery supervisor of the post office.
Blue collection boxes on Harrison Street directly north of the post office will be moved to the west side of Second Street directly behind the post office, Vergonet said Thursday, Aug. 8. The boxes will be move the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 16.
