City prepping for Business 50 upgrades

After years of watching Business 50 through Washington degrade, and recent back and forth negotiations with the Indiana Department of Transportation,  Washington Mayor Joe Wellman says he expects INDOT to bring a proposed agreement to repair the road and turn it over to the City at the November 13, Council meeting.  

                   While nothing is officially settled, and while the Council is waiting to hear from INDOT,  Mayor Wellman says the City making preparations to do its part….



           The water and sewer lines under National Highway through Washington were put in during the 1930s and are in drastic need of replacement.  Wellman said there have been seven water breaks in the lines under the old highway since the first of the year.
