Redevelopment Commission paves way for Ivy Tech I-69 campus

(Continued)

The city had pushed to build the new campus in either the former Edgewood Plaza shopping center on Nichol Avenue or downtown in the 300 block of Jackson Street. According to Winkler, the college passed on those proposals.

Other projects passed

Also approved at the meeting were a pair of funding requests for road projects.

The first will create a system of intelligent signs along the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard corridor. The dynamic signs will keep drivers informed on whether the railroad crossing downtown is closed, and a series of static signs will show detour routes. The signs will be installed in several locations, including 38th and 29th streets.

According to the commissioners, the Madison County Council of Governments has proposed traffic-diverting solutions for the railroad crossing for years. Several ideas, like an overpass, proved too costly, and the intelligent sign system was one of the more viable alternatives. According to commission president Joe Royer, the system will cost the commission about $107,000, with the project total equaling about $280,000.

Also passing unanimously was a Gateway Corridor Project that will create a series of gateways at key city entry points, including MLK Boulevard, Nichol Avenue and 18th Street. The project is expected to cost $364,000 total, with the commission covering $105,000.
