Mayor Winnecke encourages public participation in upcoming INDOT meetings about Lloyd Expressway traffic flow

(June 21, 2019) — Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is encouraging the public to participate in a series of upcoming meetings to improve traffic flow on S.R. 62/66 (Lloyd Expressway).

In an informational event held today, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officials briefed Mayor Winnecke and other public officials on ways to improve traffic flow on the Lloyd Expressway.

"Traffic backup on the Expressway is frustrating to me and the thousands of motorists who travel on it," said Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. "INDOT has been studying ways to improve traffic flow and one suggestion is a continuous flow intersection."

Mayor Winnecke, along with the City Engineer and Chief Traffic Planner, recently visited the nearest continuous flow intersection located in St. Louis, Missouri. (Watch video on Mayor Winnecke's YouTube channel.)

"We were able to get a first-hand look at what a continuous flow intersection looks like," said Mayor Winnecke. "It moves a high volume of traffic in a smooth, easy way."

In the coming months, INDOT will be hosting a series of public hearings to provide more information about the continuous flow intersection and other suggestions for upcoming projects beginning in 2024. The public is encouraged to attend to share input or concerns.

"INDOT understands the frustrations we all have traveling along the Expressway," said Mayor Winnecke. "They are trying to find practical and affordable solutions."
