The completed project will create a T-intersection with a right- and left-turn lane at Hillegas Road.

INDOT says the project seeks to improve the line of sight at the intersection and improve safety by reducing winter slide-offs at the curve.

The project is scheduled to be completed in late November, weather permitting.
