Major street work on East Market Street is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of May 4 and continue through mid-October.
According to a press release from the mayor’s office, through traffic must use Center Street or Jefferson Street for east and west travel, and Bronson Street or Argonne Road for north and south travel. Businesses will remain open during construction and can be accessed by cross streets and alleys.
Residents will experience disruptions, but local access should remain, with closures limited to one block at a time for short periods.
East Market Phase one, from Argonne Road to Bronson Street, is beginning construction. The street has suffered years of heavy wear from trucks, large trees, and hard winters.
The street rehabilitation project includes street redesign, a multi-use trail, new sidewalks, and new street trees. Phase two will continue the project to downtown with the help of a state grant.
The Market Street project will strengthen connections between the Town of Winona Lake, downtown Warsaw, Market Street neighbors, and three parks, the release states.
