Epworth Road & SR66 Project 101

Updated: May 4, 2023

WHAT: The Epworth/SR66 intersection is getting an upgrade.


The resulting intersection will be what is known as a duel symmetrical displaced left (DLT). In a DLT intersection vehicles turning left move to a dedicated lane on the other side of the road, with a signal, before they enter the intersection. There’s no need for a left turn signal at the main intersection. Left-turn traffic moves with traffic on the SR66 . This is also known as a continuous flow intersection. Cross Pointe Blvd, and Burkhardt will also be getting duel displaced left upgrades creating continuity as your travel this corridor.

WHY: Accommodate Growth: Epworth & SR66 traffic continues to grow and is a key intersection in our region.

Safety: A Displaced Left Turn Intersection is safer by reducing conflict points and types of impacts

Moves More Mainline Traffic: Displaced Left Turn intersections provide more green time to mainline (SR66) traffic.

Better Access on and off of Epworth: The upgrade will also be good for Epworth traffic with new right turn slip lanes, an additional through lane, left turn lane and more, See green highlighted image below.


WHEN: Under Construction May 2023 - November 2024 We will have a separate specific update on the schedule, lane closures, and detours

WHO: SR66 is a state road and this project is an Indiana Department of Transportation Project (INDOT). Several groups are involved with design, construction, and completion.
