DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Road maintenance is on the forefront for Delphi city leaders this year. Updates have been in the works since 2016, now the city is reaching the home stretch.

Two-thirds of the city's roadways have already been treated or reconstructed. Mayor Shane Evans said they have five to six more miles of road to go. One main focus is putting road overlay on the small streets connecting to West North Street.

While new infrastructure is ideal, Mayor Evans said it's important to also maintain what they already have.

“So we've got new buildings here in the city of Delphi and great assets for us," said Mayor Evans. "Maintaining what we already have so that we don't have to pay more in the future to maintain it is what we're focused on this year."

Mayor Evans said Delphi holds a strong historical presence. This focus on road maintenance is to upkeep that.

“We will continue to use our historical assets, our thriving downtown to improve this community more to draw people here, take advantage of the economic development impacts that are happening in Tippecanoe County to further that here in Carroll County,” said Mayor Evans.

The city is also working to get a $900,000 grant to reconstruct Samuel Milroy Road. Mayor Evans said that's the lowest rated road in the city right now.
