LYFORD, Ind. (WTHI) – A new update is coming to a dangerous intersection in Parke County. The intersection at U.S. 41 and 163, also known as the Lyford Y, is set to change to a T intersection.

INDOT is planning to take bids in May of 2018.

Changes first started happening after 19-year-old Emily Herzog was killed in a crash in 2015.

INDOT began by installing flashing lights in the stop signs to prevent another deadly accident happening. The Clinton sign that sat in the middle of the Y intersection was also removed.

Now INDOT tells News 10 a potential T plan is set to begin next year.

Some neighbors say they are concerned the road would need to be expanded to create the T intersection.  

Others say it would be a good change.
