It’s always nice when roads and streets are smooth and pothole free. Well, that’s exactly what is taking place in Farmersburg.
The community will soon have new asphalt on 11 sections of streets. The total cost for the 11 streets is 238 thousand dollars. It’s funded through a matching grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation. INDOT contributed 75 percent and the town 25 percent.
The much needed project will improve streets, like Second Avenue.
“They haven’t done anything here for years with asphalt streets just put in patches in the holes and now we’re going to put all new roads down,” said Mike Bledsoe, town president.
If all goes according to plan, Bledsoe hopes the asphalt project will be finished, later this week. This is year two of a five year project to improve streets in the community.
