The start date for a $10 million road project in Tippecanoe county is just weeks away.
The Revive Klondike project is slated to take about two years to complete. It’s broken down into three phases along Klondike Road.
Phase one begins at Lindberg Road with a installation of a roundabout and then heads north towards U.S. 52.
During phase one, Klondike is closed to through traffic all the way to Cumberland Avenue.
Highway Department Director Stewart Kline said it might be a disruption for those who travel the area, but it’s a much needed improvement to a fast growing area.
“Open it up both to the traveling community, residents, businesses,” Kline said. “The trails and the sidewalks will obviously benefit the residents in the area. It’ll make everything just more accessible.”
The county highway department is holding a public open house tomorrow at 6 pm at the Tippecanoe County Library – Klondike Branch.
This is a chance for people who travel Klondike Road to meet the contractors, find out construction details and ask questions.
