It will likely be several months before officials at the Indiana Department of Transportation decide whether its proposal for the intersection of U.S. 24 and County Road 300 E will be implemented, or if they need to go back to the drawing board.
INDOT hosted a public meeting Wednesday night, March 20, to discuss its plans for the intersection.


Under INDOT’s proposal, the existing intersection will be removed and a median U-turn would be installed. Under the plan, drivers approaching U.S. 24 from the south and wanting to turn west onto the highway would be forced to travel east a short distance and then make a U-turn through the median to head west. The same holds true for those approaching U.S. 24 from the north and wanting to travel east on the highway.


About 100 people, most from the Lagro area, were at the hearing, and all of those who spoke at the hearing were against the plans.
