(Indianapolis, IN) - Plans to turn U.S. 30 into a freeway are cruising along. The Indiana Department of Transportation will soon begin a study to formally assess the possibility of improving the U.S. 30 corridor from Valparaiso all the way to the Ohio state line.
Proponents of the upgrade believe that a freeway will improve safety and solve logistical problems with the current highway. A timeline for the study has not been released. However, until the study is completed, work on previously suggested J-turn intersections along 30 will be put on hold with the exception of one new J-turn near Fort Wayne.
