Work on Indianapolis Rd. to begin Wednesday

Monday, August 16, 2010

The Greencastle Department of Public Works will be doing milling on Indianapolis Road on Wednesday, causing possible delays and lane restrictions.

The work will be done between Percy Julian Drive and Warren Drive.

Beginning Aug. 23, the city will be doing paving from the valley east of Kroger to Warren Drive.

There will be no road closures during any of this, simply restrictions and possible delays.

Google maps also mislabel US 240. US 240 veers off of Indianapolis Rd and connects with Veterans Memorial Highway. Mapquest gets it right. This confusion on where 240 is explains why a bannergraphic article stated the 4-H parade route starts at a non-existant intersection (Washington and 240). http://www.bannergraphic.com/story/16513...

I thought I'd add that in as the discussions talk about the confusion of some road names. It looks like they fixed the Warren Dr/St confusion in a Greencastle Common Council meeting. Percy Julian Dr is mentioned in the article- Does anyone else think the council should address why that one street has 3 names (a.k.a. Fawn View and Zinc Mill)?

The work being done is great and a long time coming. I am hoepful that the city council continues to look into all the incorrect street names as well.

The one question I have is why a contractor from out of town (Terre Haute) is doing the work? ST Construction does good work and has a good reputation, but the work should have been awarded to local Putnam County contractors. What happened to 'Buy Local'......If you spend your money in Putnam County it stays in Putnam County. The reason is simple, we do what numbers and computers tell us to do rather than using our heads to make a sound economic decision for Putnam County.
