‘Dog bone’ planned for dangerous intersectionAugust 6, 2018
By The Associated Press
ROLLING PRAIRIE — State officials want to revamp one of Indiana’s most dangerous intersections by turning it into what’s known as a “dog bone” interchange.
The northern Indiana intersection of U.S. 20 and Indiana 2 near the LaPorte County town of Rolling Prairie currently uses traffic signals.
But the South Bend Tribune reports that many crashes have occurred there as drivers try to make it through the signals. The Indiana Department of Transportation says nearly 240 crashes occurred at the site between 2008 and 2017.
INDOT wants to make it safer by building a north-south bridge traversing the intersection’s east-west corridor to allow traffic to flow uninterrupted along that corridor.
The $7.1 million interchange would include roundabouts both north and south of the bridge, giving it dog bone-like shape.
