Indiana Department of Transportation will host a public hearing regarding proposed road rehabilitation on Ind. 28, from U.S. 231 to the U.S. 52 West Junction, which is approximately 10.4 miles in length, located in Tippecanoe County.
The public hearing will be held today at the James Cole Elementary School Cafeteria, in Lafayette. Doors are open to the public at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 6:00 p.m.The intent of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the environmental document and preliminary plans for the proposed road rehabilitation.
The purpose of the project is to address current pavement conditions by means of full depth reclamation while also addressing the sub-standard sight distances by slightly reducing the tops of the small hills that occur along the project length.
According to INDOT, the preferred maintenance of traffic plan will most likely occur in three phases, which at times will require lane closures, restrictions, and detour routes, however exact details will be refined when the project progresses to actual construction. The official state maintained detour route will use US 231, Ind. 25, and US 52, however local roads may be used by local traffic. Access to all adjacent properties will be maintained during construction. Disruption of emergency services and school bus routes may occur but will be notified prior to any construction that would limit or impede access.
The environmental document includes information regarding community and environmental impacts related to the proposed project. The environmental document summary and the preliminary designs are available to view prior to the public hearing at https://www.in.gov/indot/3952.htm or at the following location:
