A major Starke County road project is substantially complete. Members of the county council and commissioners and officials from the Starke County Economic Development Commission will celebrate the reconstruction of the intersection of State Road 8 and 300 East later today. The intersection has been rebuilt to accommodate traffic to and from the Knox Industrial Park. It now features a turn lane and acceleration and deceleration lanes to help trucks more easily navigate the corner.
Work is continuing farther south on 300 East between Pacific Avenue and Culver Road. That project is also designed to improve access to the businesses in the Knox Industrial Park and make the area more attractive to industries looking for a new location.
