City receives funding to pave roads in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind.—The City of South Bend has received additional funding from the state to pave 4.3 lane miles and update cross ramps of four streets to ADA standards, the city said Wednesday.

The $367,634.15 from the state will be matched with local funds.

Paving and project-related work will happen in 2020, with the project going up for public bid in the coming months.

The following four roads will be paved as part of the project:

  • Ameritech Drive from Cleveland Road to Carbonmill
  • Ironwood Drive from Irelands Road to the city limits
  • Miami Street from Ireland Road to Widener Lane
  • Olive Street from Elwood Avenue to Lincoln Way West

The City received the current grant from the state’s Community Crossings Matching Grant program in addition to the nearly $600,000 it received earlier in 2019. The first grant funded projects on Corby and Jefferson boulevards and Linden Ave. and Riverside Drive.
