Officials with the Indiana Department of Transportation will address the use of rumble stripes as a safety improvement measure at 6 p.m. Thursday at a public information meeting at the Seymour District offices at 185 Agrico Lane.
A presentation will focus on why the state is installing corrugated centerline striping and edge striping. Following the presentations, INDOT officials will take questions and hear concerns from those in attendance.
The Federal Highway Administration recommends rumble stripes on centerlines or at the edge or shoulder of undivided rural highways with posted speeds of 50 mph or more.
To date, rumble stripes have been installed at these following locations in Jackson County over the past two years:
- U.S. 50 from Interstate 65 at Seymour to State Road 3 at North Vernon
- U.S. 50 from State Road 446 to State Road 135 in Lawrence and Jackson counties
Rumble stripe corrugations are being scheduled for State Road 11 north of Seymour.
INDOT’s Seymour office is just north of U.S. 50 and less than a mile west of Interstate 65.
Presentation materials will be posted to the INDOT Seymour District webpage at in.gov/indot/2706.htm following Thursday’s meeting.
