Changes are coming to the downtown Elkhart railroad interchange.

The interchange will be moved with a $5.2 million project that was announced on Thursday.

The Elkhart Truth reports that the Elkhart and Western Railroad is looking to upgrade the nine-mile Elkhart Branch line and move the interchange track to an industrial area on the city’s west side. The new site is between SR 19 and Jay Dee St. which
is expected to eliminate more than 600 hours of delays for drivers each year.

It should be completed in 2024.

A much better idea would be to move the Post Office to a less congested area.
