Portion of Starke County Road 300 East to Partially Reopen Today


A portion of Starke County Road 300 East will reopen to traffic today. Work is ongoing to widen the road and rebuild the intersection with State Road 8 to improve access to the Knox Industrial Park. The project engineer advises 300 East will be open to northbound traffic only from Culver Road north to State Road 8. Culver Road will be fully open in both directions east and west of that intersection. Pacific Avenue will be fully open to the west of 300 East/Kloeckner Drive. To the east of that intersection Pacific Avenue may be closed temporarily between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Pacific Avenue will be open each afternoon and overnight. Crews are replacing the storm sewer on Pacific Avenue as part of the upgrades. That project should be done in a few weeks. The entire road construction project is slated for completion in November.
