UPDATE: U.S. 231 meeting postponed over coronavirus concern

Thursday, March 12, 2020

UPDATE: The US 231 meeting scheduled for Monday, March 16 is being postponed due to new guidance related to the Coronavirus outbreak. The new date will be determined after schedules can be coordinated and the outbreak has lapsed.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will conduct a public information meeting in Greencastle Monday, March 16 for the proposed U.S. 231 road rehabilitation project.

The project on U.S. 231 extends from just south of State Road 240 north to Frazier Street in Greencastle.

The meeting will be held at Greencastle City Hall, 1 N. Locust St. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation to begin at 6:15 p.m.

The proposed INDOT project includes resurfacing the roadway with asphalt from the beginning of the project northward to Washington Street and pavement replacement from Washington Street north to the railroad crossing. From the railroad crossing north to Frazier Street the pavement will be milled, patched and resurfaced. The curb-ramps will be updated to be ADA-compliant.

The existing water main located under U.S. 231 along Jackson and Washington Streets will be relocated outside of the roadway, INDOT said.

Monday’s public information meeting is seen as an opportunity for INDOT to meet with members of the community regarding the road work, solicit input and address concerns the community may have regarding the proposed project.
