INDOT: US 41/Elkhorn Road Intersection Changes

The Indiana Department of Transportation held an open house Thursday to release plans for a U-turn intersection at U-S 41 and Elkhorn Road, just south of Vincennes.

INDOT spokesman Gary Bryan says the updated intersection will affect only one direction of traffic.

The setup is similar to a set of U-turn intersections on U-S 41 at Oaktown.

Bryan claims the Oaktown U-turn intersections have worked out much better than expected.

The Elkhorn Road intersection will be designed to fit larger vehicles coming from the nearby U-S 41 Industrial Park.

IN-DOT will bid out the project in March of next year, with construction slated to begin late in 2023.

INDOT expects to re-open the intersection sometime in 2024.
