State Road 23 to Close in Koontz Lake for Road Project

State Road 23 in Koontz Lake will be closed between County Roads 1000 East and 825 North beginning Monday, April 9th. INDOT crews will be constructing a new roadway and bridge at the Koontz Lake dam project site. The road is expected to reopen in July, weather permitting.

Work is being done to replace the Koontz Lake Dam and straighten out the curve in the road that passes over the dam on State Road 23. The project is expected to be completed this year.

The State Budget Committee approved $5.8 million for the construction of the Koontz Lake Dam.
