Eastbound and Down

Saturday, October 12, 2019
With surface and striping complete, Indianapolis Road between Kroger and Percy L. Julian Drive features something it hasnít since spring ó eastbound traffic. The project that has dominated the area since April is nearing completion, with some miscellaneous work yet to complete. It could require some lane shifts, but the one-way detour is at an end. Additionally, a retaining wall needs to be installed to finish the sidewalk on the north side of the road.

Meanwhile the ever-witty marquee signs at Service Master and Headley Hardware welcome the return of regular traffic.

  • You didn't show the Headley sign saying the 6 month nightmare is over. Please Greencastle don't use that out-of-state contractor ever again.

  • The unfortunate result of the new three lanes and the newly paved street is east bound traffic "SPEEDING" AT 40-50 MILES PER HOUR like I witnessed at the intersection of McDonalds and CVS Friday afternoon at 3PM.

    Greencastle City Police please slow these speeders down!

  • @Ben Dover the weather caused most of the delays. Did you forget the historically wet spring we had? Itís easy to do with record heat and drought in September.

  • @techphcy: I saw many days of good weather where the crews were nowhere to be seen. Everything about their work gave the impression they were in over their head. Low bid isn't always the best bid.

  • I find it interesting each comment has a tinge of negativity to it. I feel it is a better stretch now than before. There will always be imperfection but surely there is a positive or two in the improvements.

  • Beg: I agree , the stretch of road is so much better. Before that section in front of McDonald's was horrible. Hopefully it will last and hopefully the utilities will not go out and start digging holes in this nice new pavement. Yes there are imperfections but WOW it is nice for now :)

  • Ravenwood and Sherwood Drives are not front page news but the new BlackTop is in place and Milestone did a fine job.
