INDOT to discuss roundabouts for US 50 in North Vernon

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will host a public information meeting next week to discuss proposed intersection improvements on U.S. 50 in North Vernon. Specifically, the intersection at State Road 750 on the west side of North Vernon and the intersection of State Road 750, also known as Buckeye Street, on the east side of the city.

INDOT says that the preferred fix are constructions of roundabouts at each intersection. The agency says that the proposed improvements are part of comprehensive transportation improvement delivered to the community as part of the U.S. 50 North Vernon Corridor Project.

INDOT says that the purpose of the meeting, set for Wednesday, Sept. 14, is to present information about the projects and to engage residents in conversation about improving safety at each intersection.

INDOT is inviting residents, commuters and other interested parties to next Wednesday’s event, being held in the Jennings County High School Auditorium. Organizers say that an open house begins at 5:30 p.m., while the formal presentation begins at 6 p.m.

Officials with INDOT say that, during the open house session, they will be available to address questions and explain each intersection improvement. INDOT adds that project maps, displays and information packets will be available throughout the evening.
