Work on Old State Rd. causing school traffic concerns

VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Crews continue to work on a stretch of Old State Road in Vanderburgh County.

Projects include new bridge installation and gas line relocation.

Northside Resident Dewayne Zint understands this is construction that has to be done. However, he tells 14 News there has been no communication as to when the project will finish.

“There was a period when it sat idle for a good two weeks," explains Zint. "At that time, we thought maybe the concrete was curing and we thought it was about done. Well, that wasn’t the case. We would just kind of like to know, as the people who live in the neighborhood and do have to go around this everyday.”

Zint says a lot of people in this neighborhood have complained about the traffic.

“Its all put a lot more traffic on all of the subdivisions," Zint stated. “I’ve seen complaints about speeding and heavy traffic... and we’ve got kids.”

14 News reached out the Vanderburgh County Engineer’s office. County Engineer John Stoll says they sent out an advisory to area media earlier this year about the project.

He says the project will wrap up in late November.
