Putnam County may be spared from any major roadwork this spring and summer.
Winter has left many potholes on county roads. Once the weather warms up and stabilizes, road crews will head out to begin patching and fixing the roads.
Debbie Calder, Public Relations for INDOT -- Crawfordsville, reported the only thing going on in Putnam County as far as state roads are concerned is general maintenance. There may be larger projects come fall though, but none of those have been scheduled at this time.
Dave Sutherlin from the Putnam County Highway Department gave a similar report. He said there are no major roadwork plans other than general maintenance.
"The chip-and-seal roads around the county are in bad shape," Sutherlin said. "It's going to take a lot of work to get them fixed."
The plates on Jackson St. are to be removed soon. Mayor Murray stated they are waiting on the asphalt plant to open around the first of April. When they have the asphalt the project shouldn't take much time and the plates will be removed.
Greencastle Street Department is planning to resurface Frazier Street and Barnaby Mill Road. Paul Wilson made the comment that other than the resurfacing project, the street department also has a storm drain upgrade project, paint restriping and are planting 30 additional trees for a May 3 celebration on Veteran's Memorial Highway.
There are other streets in Greencastle on the list for resurfacing but none of them have been bid on to date.
