Douglas Road reopened to east-west traffic from Twyckenham Drive through the Ironwood Road intersection on Tuesday, Sept. 6. The north-south lanes on Ironwood Road, however, have not reopened at that intersection as road construction crews widen the corridor with turning lanes and upgrade traffic lights.
This is the first time Douglas Road has been open from Twyckenham to Indiana 23 since road construction for Phases 1 and 2 began in the spring.
As in years past, Douglas Road will be one-way traffic after the football game on Saturday, Sept. 10 from Twyckenham to SR 23.
Phases 3 and 4 of the Douglas Road project are scheduled for next year. When complete, Douglas Road will be four lanes from the toll road entrance/exit to the west through the Indiana 23 intersection and beyond. Ample turning lanes will be added at the Douglas and Ironwood and the Douglas and Indiana 23 intersections, which experience significant congestion during peak traffic times.
The Indiana Department of Transportation is supervising construction.
