(BEDFORD) - The Bedford Redevelopment Commission voted to pay more than $15,000 in temporary easements to move the old Milwaukee Depot to a new location at the southwest corner of 14th and J streets.

Under Indiana Department of Transportation rules, the city has to acquire temporary rights of way to access the property. An easement must be agreed upon to establish each right of way, and a value must be set for each easement. The easement to the north of the depot, is owned by the White River Port Authority, the one to the south, by Mullis Petroleum Products. The easements will allow workers to get under and pick up the depot so it can be moved.

According to city records, both properties were appraised for the temporary rights of way, and the commission will pay $9,600 to the Port Authority and $5,500 to Mullis Petroleum.

A third right-of-way, owned by the Bedford Urban Enterprise Association, has agreed to waive the value of their easement.

Work to move the depot, which is part of the Stellar Grant projects, is scheduled to begin in mid-year and must be complete by the end of 2016.
