INDOT along with State Representative Jackie Walorski announced a new contract to add left and right turning lanes to US 31 and New Road in Lakeville.
State troopers clocked many speeders and reported several accidents in recent months, including a fatality in October. Officials say adding signs and designated turn lanes could make drivers slow down.
State Representative Jackie Walorski says, "We see traffic accidents and fatalities all the time and I know many of us here have had people in accidents or people in our families have been killed on this road. It's a very dangerous stretch of road."
INDOT will add more turning lanes to US 31 and State Road 4, once a contract is finalized.
