Rail overpass designers questioned on public input

DUNLAP — Concord township and fire officials expressed concerns with the favored design for a railroad overpass during a virtual open house Monday.

Planners behind the $30 million grade separation project led an online question and answer session for more than 40 people Monday night. They included representatives of the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Elkhart County Highway Department and project design firm Parsons Transportation Group.

What happened to the overpass planned for Hively Ave? At one time there was a large sign at the crossing singing the praises of the coming construction. I don't care where they put it as long as it is a way to avoid parked trains. Seems like Hively would have more traffic though.
