CR 1300 N Extension in Kosciusko County

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Kosciusko County will host a public information meeting on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at the Milford Community Building, 111 S. Main St., Milford, IN. The doors will be open from 3pm-5pm to give participants time to talk to project representatives. An informal presentation will be held at 4pm. The purpose of the public information meeting is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to hear a project overview and ask questions about the schedule, construction, and maintenance of traffic (MOT) for the grade separation that extends CR 1300 N over Norfolk Southern Railroad to connect to SR 15, north of the Town of Milford in Kosciusko County. The purpose of the project is to improve local and regional mobility by providing a connection between the communities of Milford, Syracuse, Goshen, and Warsaw.

The project involves the construction of an overpass bridge that will eliminate the need to use the at-grade crossings of the Norfolk Southern Railroad in the Towns of Milford and Milford Junction. Main Street will be realigned to the east to allow for the new bridge to cross both the Norfolk Southern Railroad and Main Street. The extension of CR 1300 N will terminate at SR 15 and will be controlled by a stop sign. The new bridge will provide two 12-foot wide travel lanes, one in each direction, with 9-foot 6-inch shoulders. The CR 1300 N extension roadway will provide two 12-foot wide travel lanes with 8-foot paved shoulders. New underdrains and guardrails will be installed as needed throughout the project area. Main Street will retain its 10-foot travel lanes with 2-foot usable shoulders. SR 15 will retain its existing configuration but will be widened near the proposed intersection with the CR 1300 N extension to allow for a right turn lane for northbound traffic from SR 15 to CR 1300 N and a passing blister for southbound traffic on SR 15. The new roadway in this section will include two 12-foot travel lanes, one 12-foot right turn lane, and one 12-foot passing blister. The usable shoulders will be 8 feet wide on the east side of SR 15 and 4 feet wide on the west side of SR 15.

Comments or questions may be submitted prior to the public information meeting or after to: Michael Baker International, 3815 River Crossing Parkway, Suite 20, Indianapolis, IN 46240 or by E-Mail:
