South Main Street and Hively Avenue

The southbound lanes of South Main Street between Lusher and Hively avenues will be closed through Aug. 24.

ELKHART — South Main Street between Lusher and Hively avenues was closed in the southbound direction this week and will remain closed until late August.

The closure is a part of the project to transform the section from a four-lane road to a three-lane road that includes a center turn lane, as was done on a section of Benham Avenue last year.

Another stupid traffic slowing move by the City! A main artery into the City from the south .... handling US 20 bypass traffic coming into the town. This should be quite interesting when the Hively Av overpass or underpass is built!


Not sure if it is the City's call or the county, but going from 4 lanes to 2 with a turn lane between them doesn't seem like an improvement. When you toss in a few blocked crossings with parked trains, traveling around between Elkhart and Goshen is a real joy.


What's really stupid is, we will probably see in a few admins down the road... Someone will pay again to tear it all out when they come to their senses... Jackson St. included...
