Everyone Loves Road Construction!

Tracy Warner on the state's hot-off-the-presses ten-year highways plan:
Some specific plans for northeast Indiana include:
  • Building the new four-lane U.S. 24 from New Haven to the Ohio state line (Port to Fort project) in four phases, 2008-2012. Cost: $84 million.
  • Doing the next phase of widening I-69, from Coldwater to DuPont roads, in 2007. Cost: $37 million.
  • Widen U.S. 33 from U.S. 30 to Cook Road. Starts: 2006. Cost: $11.5 million.
  • Widen U.S. 6 in Kendallville between the Indiana 3 North and Indiana 3 South intersections. Starts: 2006. Cost: $6.5 million.
  • Illinois Road gets a widening and makeover from West Hamilton Road to I-69 over three phases in 2008.
  • DuPont Road gets a widening for the portion that carries Indiana 1 in 2008.
Another project with a Fort Wayne connection is the final leg of the Hoosier Heartland Corridor, the four-lane highway from the Fort to Lafayette. The remaining segment, Indiana 25 from Logansport to Lafayette, would be built in phases from 2011 to 2016.
