Transportation Enhancement08/27/2014Dignitaries were on hand to open the new U.S. 31 segment between Plymouth and South Bend on August 27th. Marshall County now has improved access to major transportation routes throughout northern Indiana. Additional U.S. 31 projects to the south will provide a more efficient and safer route to the Indianapolis market. More importantly, transportation plays a critical role in moving product, and is viewed as a key feature for Marshall County due to its manufacturing base. In visiting with over forty Marshall County businesses this summer, MCEDC affirmed the importance that U.S. 30 and 31 plays in moving goods throughout the region. Many businesses have indicated that these routes provide vital links for logistics and distribution of their raw materials and finished goods.
