Written statement issued Wednesday morning:
Garrett, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Fort Wayne District announces that an overhead intersectional all-red flashing beacon has been installed at the all-way stop at SR 327 and SR 8 in Garrett. These flashers will be activated pending electrical connection hook-up.
The flashing beacon was installed as a result of a traffic study requested by Garrett Mayor Dave Wiant that found an exceptionally high crash rate for an intersection with all-way stop traffic control.
Motorists need to proceed with caution as they adjust to the new configuration.
