The push for a stoplight where a Spencer County high school student died is one step closer to happening.
You'll soon find papers posted around Rockport to announce a public hearing with INDOT that's set for June 4.
It's a meeting that's been months in the making.
"My child was taken from me and I know INDOT says there's not enough traffic and stuff you know, but we've had one child die and that's one too many," mother Jamie Hogston said.
The intersection right in front of South Spencer High School always worried Jamie Hogston. When her son, Jacob Hamilton, began driving to school, she worried even more.
IDOT has made some changes to that area. Some new signs have been put up and the speed limit has been reduced from 50 to 45 miles per hours.
But, some residents say that's still not enough. If you would like to attend that public hearing, it's set for June 4 at 6:30 p.m. at South Spencer High School.
