Street projects lead to two-way traffic

NAPPANEE — Summer roadwork along E. Lincoln Street has resulted in the decision to convert the 100 block of S. Elm Street to two-way traffic. Previously the area has been used only for southbound traffic.
Outlines of the work to be performed include blocking off entrances to the road from a major city parking lot, located on the north side. Changing traffic flow on south Elm will allow vehicles to enter and leave the parking lot, with access to E. Market Street (U.S. 6).
The 100 block of south Elm will continue allowing two-way traffic through September pending completion of the project.
Area residents should also note that the buggy shed will be temporarily closed due to the work.
Two reserve police officers, and a crossing guard, have resigned from their positions.
Reserve Ptl. Randy Lehman left his post with the Nappanee Police Department to accept a position on the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.
Fellow reserve officer Dennis Henry resigned for personal reasons.
Delores Newcomer will not return to her position as crossing guard when school begins in August. She served in the position for 20 years.
Justin Miller has been added to the Nappanee Paramedic Emergency Medical Services Department. He has completed classes and serves as a Basic Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
