The Indiana Department of Transportation will conduct a public hearing for proposed State Road 60 intersection improvements at East St. Joe Road and West St. Joe Road— on Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. in Silver Creek High School’s cafeteria. Attendees should enter Door A. The school is located at 557 Renz Avenue in Sellersburg.
Wednesday’s public hearing allows interested persons to make on-the-record comments about preliminary design plans and express concerns they may have about the S.R. 60 project. Verbal statements will be recorded and written comments collected for consideration before development of final engineering plans move forward.
Written comments may also be submitted for up to two weeks after the hearing. They should be addressed to: Public Hearings, Indiana Government Center North, Room N642, 100 N. Senate Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204.
INDOT’s proposed project would widen S.R. 60 and the bridge spanning Elk Run between the two St. Joe Road intersections. It includes right and left turn lanes on S.R. 60 and at both legs of S.R. Joe Road. The intent is to greatly improve through-traffic flow between the intersections.

- Planning & Programming Department, Indiana Department of Transportation Seymour District office, 185 Agrico Lane, Seymour.
