COLUMBIA CITY â€” In the near future, Whitley Countyâ€™s Commissioners will be meeting with Allen County Commissioners to hear what they have to say about a possible road project â€” coinciding with the county line.
The estimated $2.2 million project would move part of East CR 900 S., in Whitley County, to connect with Liberty Mills in Allen County.
â€śThose who want it will tell you the benefit is itâ€™s a dangerous intersection, and we need to cure that,â€ť said Whitley County Commissioner Don Amber.
While Amber said the project is ideal, in his approximately 30 years as a paramedic for Whitley County EMS, he does not remember working an accident at that location.
â€śIt will cost our county $101,000 and Allen County $340,000 to do it,â€ť said Amber. â€śWe will listen to what Allen County has to say and make a decision based on what we think is best for the county.â€ť
