NOW: All streets now open in downtown Elkhart’s River District

ELKHART, Ind.—All streets are now open to vehicle traffic in downtown Elkhart’s River District, including arterial streets such as Jackson Boulevard and Elkhart Avenue as well as secondary streets.

On-street parking is currently limited from 6 a.m. to midnight.

Mayor Tim Neese announced Friday that road construction is complete for 2018.

Crews will now focus on installing additional lighting along Jackson Boulevard.

They will also be working on sidewalks, brick pavers, and adding more landscaping elements to trees planted earlier this year.

Other work this winter will include utility connections to the Elkhart Health and Aquatics center and installation of underground facilities for Indiana Michigan Power and Frontier Communications.

Work in the Elkhart River District will continue in 2019.

Reconstruction of the remaining section of Jackson Boulevard, from Junior Achievement Drive to Prairie/ Johnson Street will start in March.
