Public meeting about Lincoln Ave. construction

NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -

People interested in Phase 3 of the Lincoln Avenue ReconstructionProject are invited to an open house Thursday night in Newburgh.

It's being hosted by the Warrick County Commissioners and theLochmueller Group.

The event runs from 6-8 p.m. in the chapel of First Christian Church at4544 Old S.R. 261 (intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Old S. R. 261). 

There will be an introduction andpresentation at 6:30 p.m.  You're askedto enter through the chapel doors along the west side of the church.

The Lochmueller Group says Phase 3 of the project will go from BellRoad to Lenn Road, approximately 1.24 miles.  

They say project maps and displays as well as preliminary constructionplans will be available for the public to review.  Those attending may also ask questions andgive their input about the plan.

According to the Lochmueller Group, the project is needed because of "hightraffic volumes coupled with the narrow existing roadway widths, no shoulders,and insufficient sight distance decreasing the safety of the roadway."

We're told the goal of the project is to make the road safer and moreserviceable by widening travel lanes, adding bike lanes and sidewalk andimproving sight distance at curves and intersections.  Work is also planned to improve drainage issues.

The Lochmueller Group says the estimated construction cost for theproject is $4,165,000.

Construction is scheduled to begin in November 2016 and is expected toend in the fall of 2018.
