The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will hold a public hearing on November 14 in Greenfield on design plans for a State Road 9.
The hearing at the Greenfield-Central Junior High School Cafeteria, will offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on current design plans for the State Road 9, hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlay between I-70 and US 52 in Hancock and Shelby counties.
The project is approximately 9.5 miles in length and proposes a section of access control specific to the area between I-70 and McKenzie Road. The access control area would remove the center two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL) in seven locations and replace it with a raised landscaped median with dedicated left-turn lanes.
The project will also include the construction of supplemental storm-water infrastructures such as inlets, connections, and manholes where ponding currently occurs generally between 4Th St. to Park Ave. and Ohio Street to Illinois St.
Standard-compliant curb ramps will be reconstructed where appropriate and drainage improvements will be made in the areas of the southwest quadrant of State Road 9 at an unnamed tributary to Brandywine Creek and at County Road 100 South/Davis Road.
Additional details about the project will be presented at the public hearing. Federal and state funds are proposed to be used for the construction of the project.
