Officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation will be hosting a public hearing tonight to gather comments on the proposed J-turn intersection on U.S. 31 at State Road 10 and State Road 110 in Marshall County. An open house is set for 6 p.m. with the formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. at the Argos Town Hall, 201 W. Walnut Street.
According to INDOT, J-turn intersections enhance safety by preventing direct crossing and left turn movements. These types of intersections are generally limited to locations where the main road has four or more through lanes divided by a median. They are meant to improve the ability of traffic to cross a multilane divided highway from a crossroad, and reduce the number of traffic signal phases.
