RUSHVILLE - The Indiana Department of Transportation met with utility companies, Rushville and Rush County officials and Milestone Contractors to discuss construction of the west-end extension of 16th Street to Spencer Street (at C.R. 100 North). The pre-construction meeting for this $1.9 million Local Public Agency project sponsored by the City of Rushville was convened at INDOT’s Greenfield District facility this afternoon (OCT. 3).
The 16th Street extension includes three-quarters of a mile of brand-new roadway with new sanitary and storm sewers, ADA-complaint sidewalks, curbs and gutters.
Milestone hopes to start clearing the construction area as early as next week. Once cleared and staked, utility companies will begin relocating their services. Excavation for sewer mainlines should soon follow.
LPA projects are funded by the Federal Highway Administration (80 percent) and the sponsoring local agency (20 percent). INDOT administers federal monies and assures compliance with regulations and requirements.
