Steps Taken to Ease Traffic Congestion

(Michigan City, IN) -There are plans to help traffic congestion at a busy intersection near Michigan City.


The work will happen at Johnson Road and 400 North. Right now, there is just one traffic signal with a left-hand turn arrow.  Signals with left-hand turn arrows will go on each of the other



The intersection was reconstructed a few years ago, but the state highway department felt there wasn’t a need for each side to have dedicated left hand-turn signal arrows.


But, local officials fielding a lot of complaints about traffic back-ups says that hasn’t been the case.


The LaPorte County Council on Monday approved having left-hand turn signals Installed there at just over $9,000.
