The exisiting, triangular 3-legged type intersection will be reconstructed to a T-intersection with an all-way stop condition.

A short left turn lane will be included on the northbound approach. Mailbox turnouts will be modified as part of the project to enhance safety. 

The Lyford Intersection Improvement open house is an opportunity for INDOT to meet with members of the community regarding upcoming construgtion related activites. 

"Project Open House" will be on Feb. 1 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Eagles Lodge in Clinton, Indiana. 

During the open house INDOT representatives will be available to address questions and discuss the objectives of the project. The open will be an informal session.
