FRANKFORT, Ind. – Progress continues on the $3 million Washington Avenue Project. Frankfort Street Department Superintendent Jason Forsythe reports the utility work associated with Phase 2 of the Washington Avenue project nears completion. Once Milestone Contractors completes the stormwater system all utility work will be completed, and construction crews will move next to the removal of all existing asphalt and underlying brick. This necessary work allows for the subgrade treatment process to take place.

“Milestone Contractors and American Structurepoint met with us last week to provide an update on the construction progress, and we want to share that information with the community,” stated Forsythe in a City of Frankfort press release. “We recognize that the Washington Avenue project has impacted travel in the city and has been an inconvenience to many, but we believe that the end result will be a significant benefit local residents and drivers.”

Retaining walls are being installed this week and will continue through next week. Concrete work, including curbs and gutters, is expected to be completed by November, with base stone and intermediate asphalt to follow. While no date has been set for the road to reopen, Frankfort Street Department will continue to update the community as the Washington Avenue project progresses.
