Etna Avenue residents can provide input on road renovation project

Residents who would be affected by a proposed road renovation on Etna Avenue are invited to attend a City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 12, to provide their input on the project.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on the third floor of the City Building, 300 Cherry St.

The road work would affect Etna Avenue from the London Street area to the Wabash River. It would include new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, paving and oversized storm sewers.

The work would improve drainage in the area, make the road safer for travel and make the area more attractive for development, says Dave Schoeff, the city's director of engineering.

An Indiana Department of Transportation grant would fund about $2.58 million of the $5 million project.
