Lafayette Center roadwork advances

The Allen County commissioners signed an agreement Friday with Huntington County commissioners and the Indiana Department of Transportation that will step up a state-funded $30 million project to widen Lafayette Center Road from the General Motors Assembly plant to Roanoke, about 3.7 miles.

When complete, the road will essentially form an extension of Interstate 469, connecting it to U.S. 24 in Roanoke. That will make a highway corridor from Toledo to Fort Wayne to Huntington, Wabash and west to I-65 at Lafayette.

The state has put the project on a fast track, and construction will begin in 2016, said Jay Poe, chairman of the Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana and Huntington County surveyor. Poe spearheaded the project 18 months ago.
