State to extend Ind. 267 off-ramp, install traffic signal

Temporary traffic signals will be installed, and an off-ramp will be lengthened, at an intersection that becomes swamped with workers going to and from Amazon.com’s Whitestown warehouse during late fall.

The Indiana Department of Transportation will put the signal at the intersection of County Road 400 E. and Albert W. White Parkway (CR 400 S), Boone County Commissioner Jeff Wolfe said Monday at the board’s meeting. That signal will be removed when the project is complete, but two permanent traffic signals will be installed on Indiana 267 to regulate traffic exiting and entering Interstate 65.

The northbound off-ramp from I-65 to Ind. 267, just east of that intersection, will be lengthened about 100 to 150 feet to reduce traffic jams created by Amazon workers during the company’s peak pre-Christmas shipping time, Wolfe said.

Completion of the temporary ramp could come by September, he said.

Several accidents, one of them fatal, have been caused on I-65 because of a backlog of drivers exiting to 267.

A project to improve the CR 400 E intersection with Albert S. White Parkway has been planned for several years. Earlier this year, INDOT told Boone County it would assume responsibility – including costs – for the project.
