SR 335 Repairs Begin Thursday (Greenville To Pekin)
The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to make repairs to State Road 335 between Greenville and Pekin—beginning Thursday (JULY 20)—weather permitting. Motorists will be directed around advancing worksites by flaggers.
E & B Paving, the state’s contractor for an $870,000 patch and rehabilitation project, should begin making full- and partial-depth asphalt patches in the northbound lane of S.R. 335 starting a Greenville. In approximately two weeks, work will shift to the southbound lane beginning at Pekin.
S.R. 111 and S.R. 211 in eastern Harrison County have been rehabilitated under this repair contract. Once work on S.R. 335 has been completed, operations will focus on S.R. 56 in Washington County.
Pavement striping will occur in late August.
Floyd County Selected by Governor Holcomb for FSSA’s On My Way Pre-K program
Governor Eric J. Holcomb today announced 15 additional Indiana counties are now eligible to participate in On My Way Pre-K, making prekindergarten available in 2018 to 4-year olds from low-income families in those counties. Earlier this year, the Indiana General Assembly expanded the program from five pilot counties to 20 counties in House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1004-2017.
The new counties added to the On My Way Pre-K program are Bartholomew, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart, Floyd, Grant, Harrison, Howard, Kosciusko, Madison, Marshall, Monroe, St. Joseph, Tippecanoe and Vigo. Participating local providers in these counties will be expected to enroll children in On My Way Pre-K for the 2018/2019 school year, with the possibility of a limited program beginning in January of 2018.
These additional counties will join Allen, Jackson, Lake, Marion and Vanderburgh counties, which have provided early education via the On My Way Pre-K program since 2015 when first authorized by the General Assembly.
