Abstract (Document Summary)

"What do you see as your vision for 933 in 10 to 15 years?" InDOT route transfer specialist Jamie Gallagher asked representatives from the city of Mishawaka, the town of Osceola, St. Joseph County and the city of South Bend in each of their separate hourlong meetings. Don Abraham, InDOT district development engineer, and Jamile Smith, an InDOT program development engineer, also attended the meeting.

Osceola Town Council President Greg Burris said taking on 1.25 miles of Indiana 933 would be a significant burden for his small community. Responsibility for the road would require Osceola to add personnel and a heavy duty snowplow that could only be used on that stretch of road, said Bob Richardson. Richardson, working as a consultant for Osceola, said the state has neglected the road and submitted a handwritten document, several pages long, that itemized necessary road improvements.

Indiana 933 relinquishment The Indiana Department of Transportation has notified Roseland, South Bend, Mishawaka and Osceola of plans to turn over Indiana 933 to local municipalities, forcing them to pay for upkeep. The municipalities oppose the idea. Tribune Graphic/JOHN STUMP Enlarge graphic; Photo: transbar.gif
