College Avenue back to one-way status; Locust Street still closed

Friday, January 10, 2020

Back in early December, College Avenue in Greencastle was declared one-way northbound again, and the city removed the stopsign at the corner of College and Berry streets and restored the one-way sign.

Unfortunately, neighbors report that traffic is still coming southbound on College, against traffic and parking.

With DePauw University completing work at the intersection of College Avenue and Olive Street, the traffic pattern has returned to a one-way traffic flow northbound. Drivers should be advised that two-way traffic is no longer in effect on College Avenue south of campus.

Neighbors and residents of the area south of campus are reminded that construction continues on the new dormitory and at the Lilly Center. Although Olive Street is open, drivers should be alert for construction traffic and pedestrians in and around the College Avenue and Olive Street intersection.

Mayor Bill Dory reported Thursday night that Locust Street should be open soon. It has been closed south of Olive Street for construction of the new DePauw residence hall.

Concrete was poured on Locust Street Thursday and the contractors asked for a little extra time to let it cure. Probably into next week.

A three-week project has turned into four months, Councilman Tyler Wade assessed.

A variety of delays have impacted that, Mayor Dory responded.

He noted that Locust Street will get a top coat of asphalt next spring.
