RUSHVILLE — A year of road work

A number of INDOT road improvement projects were realized on state roads surrounding Rushville during 2012.

Improvements were made on SR 3 from Rushville to U.S. 40. INDOT crews chipped and sealed the state road, reducing northbound and southbound travel to a single lane for nearly a month.

South and east of the Rushville city limits similar projects were completed on SR 3 to the county line and on East U.S. 52.

Once the initial U.S. 52 project was completed a number of complaints were received by state officials regarding what motorists felt were reduced driving conditions and a second road improvement effort was realized in the fall.

The state had an official truck and detour route designated around the improvements from U.S. 40 west to SR 9 south to U.S. 52 although many motorist chose a more direct route to are county roads for north and south travel. The result was damage to county roads that required attention and repairs conducted by the Rush County Highway Department.

The most recent improvement projects came on the heals of a nearly two-year project in the city limits that was completed in the fall of 2011 on Main Street that included a new drainage system for Rushville residents.

INTAT announces local expansion

In early September we reported that INTAT Precision, Inc., Rushville President Tyler Usami and Vice President Brad Rist had announced exciting news for the Rushville operations and the employees that make up the operation.

INTAT’s parent, AISIN TAKAOKA CO., has authorized the expansion of the Rushville operation to include a third casting line at their Plant Two facility.

This represents, at a minimum, a $26 million investment that is targeted to begin and be completed in 2013.

With this expansion, projected new jobs created could be as high as 45.

“This is the result of the level of performance that has been achieved at the Rushville operation,” Rist said. “Our operation has really stepped up to meet several challenges the last few years, and through this recovery we have demonstrated a confidence internally that made the decision to expand here the best choice. We believe that this decision coincides with a spirit of good things to come to the Rushville community. We are excited to be a part of it.”

Rushville Mayor Mike Pavey was obviously pleased by the announcement.

“We could not be more happy for the INTAT family and what this means as a commitment to the future of INTAT within our community,” he said.
