Elkhart County officials opened bids for intersection improvements north of Middlebury, Ind., which will be funded by Grand Design RV.

Commissioners opened three bids for improvements to U.S. 131 and C.R. 2. The work will include additional turn lanes and turning radius improvements, according to Transportation Manager Charlie McKenzie.

“This project is basically being funded by Grand Design, due to the development they’re doing in the area,” he said.

The company has experienced major growth since it launched in 2013. It has invested tens of millions of dollars in new manufacturing space and has grown from 35 employees to about 1,700, the company said during a tour of the plant in May.

Grand Design was projected to produce its 100,000th unit this summer.
