Paving begins at North Vernon roundabout


An Indiana Department of Transportation contractor will begin paving operations this week at the roundabout construction site 2 miles west of North Vernon where U.S. 50 intersects with Walnut Street and County Road 400W.

The project, which is weather dependent, is being done to normalize traffic flow at the oval junction.

Striping and other construction activities will be done under traffic with flaggers directing motorists around work crews.

Milestone is the state’s contractor for this $1.9 million intersection improvement project.

The new roundabout is a single-lane configuration measuring 166 feet in diameter. The roundabout’s 16-foot-wide lane encircles a center hub designed to accommodate semi-trailers on a 14-foot truck apron.
