ELKHART COUNTY Elkhart county commissioners are advising against closing a road near the Elcona Country Club.

The Elkhart Truth reports that INDOT asked commissioners to look into closing County Road 21, between C.R. 16 and U.S. 20. They are concerned about driver safety after upgrades are made to widen U.S. 20, between C.R. 17 and State Road 15.

The fire department spoke against closing 21, saying it would be hard to get to neighborhoods in that area without it. But the Elcona Country Club was in favor of the closure because currently, golfers have to cross C.R. 21 to get to the other side of the golf course.
