Officials to celebrate end of work at Yellowwood Forest

Indiana Department of Transportation and Indiana Department of Natural Resources personnel will come together next week to celebrate the conclusion of a two-year, $9 million road, bridge and flood control project at Yellowwood Forest, west of Nashville.

Last year, INDOT crews paved 1.5 miles of state-recreational-site roads south of Yellowwood Lake’s parking lot while constructing a 300-foot-long bridge on Yellowwood Road over Salt Creek.

This year, Milestone rebuilt a 1.3-mile gravel section of Yellowwood Lake Road—raising the elevation and improving drainage—from the lake north to Lanam Ridge Road. 2018 operations also included bridge/culvert work and 2000 feet of full-depth pavement reclamation on Yellowwood Road north of State Road 46.

Officials will cut a ceremonial ribbon Friday, November 30th. Area residents and others are invited to the 2:30 p.m. ceremony that will take place at the parking lot on the north end of Yellowwood Lake.
