County Road 17

Phase I consisted of a new 4-mile, 4-lane divided suburban arterial highway between US 20 and US33. The project involved new horizontal and vertical alignment, superelevation, drainage analysis, signalized intersections, two ConSpan structures, a new 750-foot bridge over the Elkhart River, and a new 225-foot bridge over US 33 and Conrail Railroad tracks. Phase II consisted of a new 4-mile transportation corridor from CR 38 to US 33. The project involved new horizontal and vertical alignment, superelevation, drainage analysis, signalized intersections, and grade separations over two county roads. Grading and planting plans were conducted for the construction of five separate wetland mitigation sites within the proposed corridor. The hydraulic analysis revealed a significant change in the 100-year flood elevation. IDNR accepted our revised figures, allowing us to reduce the bridge length by half, saving the County approximately $5 million. American Structurepoint also developed a plan with the County and a local trailer park owner to reduce the number of residential relocations, saving the County an additional $2 million.
