(KOKOMO) - Residents of Kokomo are complaining about the condition of the former U.S. 31 route through Kokomo that remains the state's responsibility despite the opening of the new bypass around the city last fall.

Mayor Greg Goodnight tells the Kokomo Tribune that the city hasn't been able to reach a deal with the state highway department about taking over what is now Indiana 931 despite more than a year of talks.

Goodnight says the two sides are millions of dollars apart on what they state would pay toward future road maintenance and that negotiations have been put on hold.

Highway department spokesman Harry McGinity says it is properly clearing and maintaining Indiana 931 through the winter and plans to do so for the foreseeable future.
