12/08/10 Due to a semi-tractor trailer crash at Michigan and Jefferson Streets on Monday December 6th, the stoplight support for westbound Jefferson Street was damaged and knocked down.  Upon further investigation by the Indiana Department of Transportation, it was found that the base of the pole was damaged as well.  According to INDOT officials at the LaPorte District the light may not be repaired until late this week.

Obviously, Michigan & Jefferson is one of the busiest intersections in Plymouth.  The Plymouth Police Department, as well as the Street Department, would like to encourage drivers to avoid that intersection as much as possible.  The Plymouth Police Department will be monitoring this intersection hourly and will have officers directing traffic during the rush hours.

Mayor Mark Senter encourages drivers to remain patient, observant and careful as they drive through the intersection.
