Second Avenue extension opens in Princeton

Second Avenue extension opens in Princeton

PRINCETON, IN (WFIE) - A road in Princeton that's been talked about for decades opens for drivers on Monday.

Princeton Mayor Bob Hurst says the Second Avenue extension finished nearly two months ahead of schedule.

He hopes because of that early completion, the city might be able to save some money on the project.

Hurst says the extension has been in discussion since the 1960's.

Drivers in the area say the new road will help factory workers save some time as they head into Princeton for their lunch break.

Mayor Hurst says he's already had developers drive down the road with him and he's hoping for more activity in that area.
