 ?    Officials representing the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) heard 100 percent negative reactions to the proposed turning lane being considered for US 150 between where the road splits into a four  lane road near Mt Saint Francis on the eastern side of the project, and the Harrison County/Floyd County line on the western side of the project.
    The gymnasium at Greenville Elementary School held dozens of residents living within the town limits, the Greenville Town Board, and INDOT officials Monday night (Sept. 9).
    Greenville Town Board President Talbotte Richardson opened the proceedings with the statement, “If they (INDOT) did what they wanted to do, it would be the death knell of this town.”
    Brett Walls, an engineer with the firm drawing up the plans, emphasized that the plans are only half done at present, and that INDOT and the engineers on the project are trying to get input from the residents at the time.
    “Public input is always a part of the design process,” Walls said.
