ELKHART, Ind. (AP) - A $1.7 million construction project has begun along the Elkhart River in northern Indiana.

Crews began working Tuesday on the Waterfall Streetscape and Riverwalk Extension project in downtown Elkhart.

City engineer Leslie Biek tells WNDU-TV (https://bit.ly/1Im5mtE ) that the goal of the project is to beautify the area and make it more attractive to businesses, residents and visitors.

The expansion project also aims to make the riverwalk accessible to people with physical disabilities by adding new guardrails and lighting.

It runs in conjunction with a combined sewer overflow project that began last year.

Both projects are expected to wrap up around the same time in September.
