Updates on four contracts that are part of the U.S. 31 Kokomo Corridor project will be discussed during an open house set for 6 p.m. Aug. 18 at Kokomo High School.

A formal presentation will be made in the high school auditorium.

“We’ve added mainline construction south of Touby Pike to Contract 8,” Kevin Jasinski of American Structurepoint said in a press release. “Contracts 10, 4 and 7 will follow in that order, so we’ll discuss those projects as well at the open house.”

Jasinski and colleagues will join Indiana Department of Transportation officials to meet with area residents and local business people. Significant attention will be paid to the U.S. 35/Ind. 22 interchange and its impact on traffic patterns. The project’s scope includes the widening of U.S. 35.

Contract 10 deals with the Touby Pike interchange and realignment of U.S. 35 at 400 North. The letting date is in August 2011.

Contract 4 focuses on the south terminus interchange near 600 North in Tipton County. The letting date is in September 2011.

Contract 7 builds the north terminus interchange. The letting date is in July 2012.

Pictorial displays of the four contracts will provide a backdrop for one-on-one conversations with INDOT and American Structurepoint representatives. Real estate personnel will also be on hand to explain the acquisition process and answer questions.

The U.S. 31 Kokomo Corridor is a $345 million Major Moves project. The 13.1-mile corridor will stretch from northern Tipton County to northern Howard County, from 2 miles south of Ind. 26 to 1 mile north of the northern U.S. 35 split.
