Work has begun on a $6.6 million project that will lead to major improvements along a section of Aboite Center Road in southwest Allen County.


The Allen County Commissioners held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday to officially start the project.  Other county officials were in attendance, along with representatives of Aboite New Trails and Lutheran Hospital.

The project along Aboite Center will extend from Coventry Lane to West Jefferson Boulevard.  It consists of widening Aboite Center from two lanes to four 12-foot wide lanes with curb and gutter, adding an eight-foot wide multi-use path on the north side and a five-foot wide sidewalk along the south side of the road.  Dicke Road will be realigned to create a new signalized intersection at the entrance to the Lutheran Hospital campus and Aboite Center Road.  Left turn lanes will be added to Aboite Center Road at the intersection of realigned Dicke Road and at the Coventry Lane intersection.

Construction during 2009 will include the Dicke Road realignment, storm sewer installation at the west end, and traffic signal improvements.  Most of the roadway, sidewalk, and trail construction, along with additional storm sewer improvements, will occur in 2010.
