Didn't they just redo the intersection a year or two ago?

Leave it to a hickville like Greencastle to have to do it all over again.

Maybe they could get the Greencastle police force to hold the stop and go signs during the construction. Would save money.

NO, all they did was a pipe line and put in a new turning lane by CVS..SO they didn't just do it...the only thing i hope is that they stick to the 4-5 months they say it will take to do it.I also hope most is done at nite,other wise it's going to be crazy getting through there...

boy...this here is another stupid waste of money!

I mean IF they want to spend some money to fix up bad or dangerous roads around Greencastle, how about fixing the exits off of 81?

everytime me and CLem drive down that way , we always see cars or trucks sticking out trying to make a left off the northbound exit at 16....it's pretty bad.

they put a light coming the othwer way for the trucks to get out, but those poor suckers comin north and wanting to turn left , take their live in their hands!

same thing at the other exit, coming norht...no light or nothin and poeple FLY coming up fomr Hagerstown on rt.11.

also how about fixin where Williamsport pick and rt11 come together?

another dangerous intersection that looks like the engineer went to Penn st or something!

looks to me like they have a lot of other dangerious roads around that town, that need fixed up before they re-do this one

boy..I tell ya the roads around here SUCK..but I use to live in Maryland and Virginy and they have REALLY nice roads down there.

thanks,
Bubba

My views are totally different. I think they should build an overpass that crosses over Rt 16.

So do I understand correctly. We spend 2.5 millions dollars of borrowed money to save 9.4 seconds of time. Makes perfect sense to whom?

What about the section of route 16 from Greencastle to Upton? That's got to be one of the worst well traveled sections of road in the state!
Hmmm

JLC has a great point 2.5 mil for 9 seconds of time saved.Sure glad they didn't want to knock a minute off the travel time. Think about it ,these are tax dollars in a basicly "broke " State.????

And ,to AHK's point you will now be able to get to a section of road so rough it will jar the fillings out of your teeth at 30 mph in 9 seconds less. Isn't it just wonderful how the politicans are looking out for us ?
what about the rest of 16

Oh come on I have to agree with AHK. What about the rest of 16 to Upton. The garbage trucks really have that area like a washboard. take the millions and fix that part of the town instead of the intersection. What is the point in fixing a intersection if you cant get there because the road is barely passable from Upton to Greencatle

I am looking forward to the changes. It is much needed. And the seconds add up over time. And it will put people to work. Great idea all around.

AHK: You are absolutely correct. Current section from Greencastle to Upton is far below par -- embarrasing even.

Thank God they will have a pedestrian friendly intersection for a town that doesn't enforce sidewalks. How do you spell irony again?

Well..ok..it is a bad intersection. Maybe Im misunderstanding. Have you seen the traffic backed up from the light the whole way to the cemetery? Or from Hardees to the underpass?How bout the bottleneck on the west side
? Maybe the overpass over 16 is a good answer. More money but better plan. There are gonna be lots of crashes in that screwed up intersection. OMG. Thats 16 lanes in one intersection!!!
