I don't suppose you got a picture?

I'm apparently about to have a lot of time off starting Friday, so maybe I'll go over there and get a picture.

I hope INDOT gets their money back for that sign.

Speaking of roundabouts…

INDOT will be holding a public forum this week to discuss the proposal of building a roundabout at the intersection of Indiana 130 and Indiana 51 (Cleveland Avenue), located just northeast of Downtown Hobart. If/when work is done, it will be a single-lane roundabout that will also accommodate the Oak Savannah Trail that sits nearby.

The current intersection originally was a four-way stop that has since been signalized. The intersection also has a “spoke” that allows southbound drivers looking to continue on 51 to skip the traffic light for the right turn. It is also notorious for blind sight lines for left turn drivers and high accident potential due to being unable to see drivers using makeshift runaround lanes to get past left turn traffic. IMO, the roundabout would be a marked improvement over what is currently there. More to come, if anything more materializes.

Indiana 130 is set to reopen within the next week. Resurfacing is complete; all that remains is the finishing touches of the intersections with Porter County Road 600 North, County Road 450 West, and Indiana 149.

The new US 12/20 split is almost set to be open as well. Grading and leveling is complete, and paving should be underway as early as this week. The quality-of-life improvements to the realigned section are scheduled to start next construction season, coinciding with the building of a revamped Miller Station and a second track for the South Shore Line, which will stretch from Gary to Michigan City.

Anyone have any idea why the *#@#$ I65 is so congested today through most of the state? Ruined my plans today.
