One city taking spring renovations to new level


CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) – Renovations are a big part of every city during the spring.

But the city of Clinton is taking it one step, or a few steps, further this season.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) started working on State Road 163 in Clinton in April.

“It’s a blessing for us to be able to have our main drag going through town a state road highway be fixed,” said Bob Alexander, Board of Works and Council-at-Large.

And that’s just the beginning.

They’re replacing sewer lines, making storm water lines. They’re also getting new sidewalks, curbs and handicapped access.

“We have the two apartment complexes going up in town. The one on the south end should be completed by the end of July, August. The Villas, on the north end, they’ve got some structures up,” said Alexander.

The entire city will see improvements throughout the summer.

And city officials couldn’t be happier with the residents.

They say they’ve been 100 percent behind the changes, even going so far as to start their own small projects.

“They all join in and they’re all fixing things up. All the clubs and organizations getting behind us. Good things are really coming ahead,” said Alexander.

Those aren’t all the updates either!

The city is also working on updating cemeteries and area parks.

Just as a reminder, INDOT will resurface 163 from State Road 63 to the Wabash River Bridge.

Once milling gets underway, motorists will see an increase in lane restrictions.

So the project will cause traffic delays and the mayor says alternate routes will be in use. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
