Public hearing on Fourth Street roundabout set for Sept. 1


Staff Reports

The Indiana Department of Transportation will conduct a public hearing on plans to modify and make improvements to the intersection of Fourth and O’Brien streets in Seymour.

The project includes construction of a mini-roundabout to replace the present four-way stop.

The meeting at 6 p.m. Sept. 1 will be in the upstairs training room at the Seymour Police Department, 205 N. Ewing St. Face masks and social distancing are recommended.

All interested persons will have an opportunity to comment on the current preliminary design plans for the $1.5 million project. Eighty percent of the project’s funding will come from the state with a 20% match from the Seymour Redevelopment Commission.

The purpose of the project is to improve the intersection for pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle traffic and reduce queuing to improve traffic flow with construction of a mini-roundabout.

The project was first announced by city officials in 2018.

Public hearings already have been conducted about the planned construction, and approval for the roundabout has been completed by the city for the application process.

Preliminary design plans and the environmental study can be viewed at Seymour City Hall, 211 N. Chestnut St., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
