Construction on C.R. 46 over Dausman Ditch Bridge will begin Elkin about two weeks.

The bridge, located between Nappanee and Goshen, will get a new deck, guardrail and beams, according to Jay Grossman, engineer for the Elkhart County Highway Department.

The bridge will also be made two feet wider and about 500 feet of the road will be paved.

The project is scheduled to finish Oct. 3, barring weather or utility delays. The road will be closed throughout the project. 

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners Monday, July 14, awarded the project contract to La Porte Construction, the lowest bidder.

Their bid was for $313,461, about $9,700 lower than the single competing bid from Northern Indiana Construction.

The commissioners Monday also approved an out-of-state travel request from the county election board. The trip’s anticipated cost of $3,800 will send Wendy Hudson, Elkhart County clerk, and Christopher Anderson, chief deputy clerk, to San Francisco for four days in August to attend The Election Center National Election Conference.
