Part of Main Street in Elkhart will closed until late August.
The southbound stretch between Lusher and Hively is shut down as part of the project to turn the four-lane road into a three-lane road with a center turn lane.
The Elkhart Truth reports that crews will also create a multiuse pathway, install new street lights and sidewalks, improve the storm sewer and water main, and more.
This is part of a $2.6 million project in two phases that is expected to be finished at the end of October. The suggested detour involves Lusher, Prairie and Hively.
