City mulls $4.8M Benham Avenue project

Benham Avenue, here at the northernmost end between the railroad underpass and the water tower, could soon be under construction, as City Council considers a $4.8 million upgrade.

ELKHART — Benham Avenue on Elkhart’s south side could be up for a $4.8 million makeover.

If the City Council appropriates the money, a large part of the street will be resurfaced, improvements will be made for pedestrians and cyclists, and a new water main, sanitary sewer and storm sewer will be installed.

Great Idea! I also think Main St south of the trax could use some love too!
