argos-j-turnThe Indiana Department of Transportation’s (INDOT) LaPorte District Office is developing plans for a proposed intersection improvement project on U.S. 31 at State Road 10 and Dewey Street in Marshall County. The proposed intersection improvement is a median U-turn, also known as a J-turn.

INDOT will host a public hearing on Tuesday, September 19 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Argos Community Jr. / Sr. High School, 500 Yearick Street.

The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the current design plans for proposed intersection improvement on U.S. 31 at S.R. 10 and Dewey Street in Marshall County.

The purpose of the project is to enhance safety for vehicular traffic at the intersections of U.S. 31 and S.R. 10 and U.S. 31 at Dewey Street in Marshall County.

The proposed improvements involve converting the existing conventional intersection to a J-turn intersection to improve safety and reduce delay by separating traffic movements.

The environmental document and project materials are available to view at the Argos Public Library, 142 North Michigan Street or LaPorte District web page.
