Two INDOT Projects Nearing Completion

Two Indiana Department of Transportation construction projects are moving along in the Starke County area.

The Koontz Lake dam road project is nearing completion. Officials say the bridge deck has been poured and the road is expected to be open to traffic sometime in early July.

The Yellow River Bridge project on U.S. 35 in Knox is still in the beginning stages. Half of the bridge has been demolished and the beams should be set on the east side of the bridge in the next two weeks. The one lane restriction will remain in place until the completion of the project, which INDOT predicts will take place in November.
