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

Lebanon — 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.
