City of Goshen cuts ribbon on newly reconstructed Wilden Avenue 

Goshen Mayor Gina Leichty was joined by Dustin Sailor, Director of Public Works and other city and community partners to celebrate the opening of West Wilden Avenue on Friday, November 17.  

“I’m continually grateful to Dustin and the entire engineering department for their dedication to bringing much-needed improvements to our City’s infrastructure as they did here at Wilden Avenue,” said Mayor Leichty. “Roadways and sidewalks are part of our everyday lives, so it’s important to continue to invest in projects like this one.” 

This $7.3 million project includes new pavement with curbs and gutters, new sidewalks, construction of a new storm sewer, and realignment and widening of Wilden Avenue at State Road 15. For the neighborhood, one of the most significant changes is the sidewalk; taking this entire stretch of walkway from one of the worst in the city to one of the best. 

The project, designed by Abonmarche, completed by Rieth Riley Construction Co., and inspected by DLZ Corporation, improves pedestrian safety and mobility, asphalt pavement, traffic flow, truck access at the intersection of Wilden Avenue and State Road 15, and drainage.  

Planning for this project began several years ago. and was considered a high priority due to it having some of the worst-rated sidewalks in the City and drainage issues tracing back to the 1960s. Construction was completed in two phases beginning in March from Rock Run Creek to 1st Street and then 1st Street to State Road 15. Last year, the City reconstructed East Wilden Avenue from State Road 15 to 5th Street.  

Wilden Ave. Set to open soon

Wilden Avenue will soon be open, but not this Saturday as planned. Reith-Riley informed the City they will need to keep the road closed until 12 PM Friday, November 17, in order to finish concrete and grading work. When they open, we anticipate a smooth ride between Indiana Avenue and Main Street!

Wilden Avenue closed for paving tomorrow

Crews are moving quickly to finish construction along Wilden Avenue. In order to complete the final surface paving, Rieth-Riley will need to close Wilden Avenue between Rock Run Creek and Michigan Avenue for part of the day tomorrow, Friday, November 3rd. Vehicles will not be able to drive between Indiana Avenue and Michigan Avenue during that time.
