Winona Roundabout Project Coming Closer To Reality

The planned roundabout project on Winona Avenue is closer to getting started.
At a meeting of the Winona Lake Redevelopment Commission Wednesday, town coordinator Craig Allebach said the project has been funded and they are ready to begin a request for bids for engineers on the project.
The redevelopment commission unanimously approved to begin requesting bids on the project.
The project is expected to cost about $1.6 million, with the federal government covering 80 percent of the cost.
Allebach said the project will not be finished until 2021 or 2022, and will be done in five different phases beginning with preliminary engineering.
The roundabout is expected to be at the intersection of Winona Avenue, Argonne Road, Kings Highway and Park Avenue near the entrance to the town.
Allebach said the town will not shut down traffic during the construction of the roundabout.
“There might be a day or two when it gets shut down, but for the most part it will be open,” he said.
