ELKHART – A plan is in the works to reduce traffic congestion in downtown Elkhart.

The city Engineering and Street Departments are recommending Harrison Street go from one way to two way traffic between Main and Third Streets.

They think it will help reduce traffic backups caused by trains at the Main Street crossing.

The plan calls for re-striping lanes on Harrison and adding two new traffic signals.

If the Board of Works approves the plan,work could be done by Labor Day.
