Mini resurfacing on State Road 23

Construction season is in full swing, and the heavily traveled State Road 23 is getting some much needed repairs.

Pothole after pothole, that's what drivers have seen on that road, especially near the University Park Mall.  

It is no secret that Michiana winters give roads a beating, making projects like this one a necessity.

INDOT communications director, Matt Deitchley agrees, "We are doing what is best referred to as mini resurfacing on the worst stretch of State Road 23 in South Bend Mishawaka area."

INDOT is calling the crumbling area from Edison to Cleveland Road, some of the worst in the region.

"That's simply because it's nearing the end of it's life span, as any road does nearing the end of it's life span its going to be more prone to potholes and cracking, things like that," said Deitchley.

So the cones are up.

This mini resurfacing is costing between $20,000 and $30,000 and crews will be using between 70-100 tons of asphalt to make the repairs.

In 2016 State Road 23 between Edison and Main and Gumwood, will be getting a complete makeover as the entire road will be resurfaced.
