Elkhart overpass named after former Mayor Dick Moore

The city of Elkhart held a dedication ceremony for the new Dick Moore Express overpass Tuesday morning.

In November 2015, the Elkhart City Council passed a resolution honoring then-Mayor Dick Moore for his 47-years of service as a firefighter, fire chief, street commissioner and mayor.

The Prairie Street overpass project was completed under his administration.

"It's extremely meaningful. When you look at everything it has done, and what it will do for many, many years to come, it's just an overwhelming situation. And I just hope it will be maintained, it will be serviced, be taken care of. I know that it will. It will go on for many, many years to come," Moore said.
