City faces additional expense for C.R. 300 project

KNOX — The city of Knox will have to bear the cost of moving fire hydrants for the C.R. 300 E. road project. Charles Weaver, executive director with the Starke County Economic Development Foundation, presented the cost estimate of $63,300 to the Knox City Council at their Feb. 25 meeting. The need to move the fire hydrants was not identified as part of the initial plans for the project that will widen C.R. 300 E. or Kloeckner Drive and enlarge intersections to facilitate semi and other traffic in the Knox Industrial Park area.
