The $3.5 million roadway reconstruction project was awarded to Milestone Contractors, Inc. of Indianapolis and includes removing approximately two inches of existing roadway, re-establishing the sub-base material under the road, repaving the roadway, extensive new storm water drainage system and gutters, installation of Americans with Disabilities Association compliant sidewalk curb ramps and replacing sidewalk on the west side of the roadway from the junction of SR 241 to the Blue Jean Center.
It is anticipated the paving portion of the contract will not begin until spring of 2015 with the overall project completion date of October 2015.
