Public meeting postponed for diverging diamond project

A public information meeting tonight on the diverging diamond project at the Interstate 69 and Dupont Road has been postponed due to weather.

The $3.5 million project is expected to begin in April and be complete by October. A diverging diamond interchange uses traffic signals at each end to have traffic cross over to driving on the left side of the road through the intersection. That allows left turns to be made without interference from cross-traffic.

The interchange is one of the most congested in the region, with long delays caused by traffic trying to turn left off I-69 onto Dupont Road or Indiana 1 and drivers on Dupont trying to turn left onto I-69.The new configuration is expected to eliminate those problems, officials said.

The meeting will be held at Carroll High School in the near future; however, a date and time have not yet been determined.
