Operation: Safe Passage wants to make a local intersection safer… in a roundabout way. Commonly known as Bretzville junction, the intersection of Indiana Highways 162 and 64, has been the scene of several accidents throughout the years.

Between 2017 and 2019 the intersection saw 116 collisions. Highway safety rating systems used to measure crash volume and economic impact have determined the area as a priority on both factors. 

The Indiana Department of Transportation – Vincennes District has been chosen to oversee the project. Lochmueller Group and VS Engineering are the engineering consultants and have already begun design and engineering work. 

A public hearing concerning the roundabout is slated for the spring of 2023, with final design plans finished in the fall of 2024, construction beginning in 2025, and the project completed in the spring of 2026. 

The organization says the new improvements will enhance safety and ease traffic flow in the area. For more information and the latest news on this development, local residents can visit INSafePassage.Com

    That is going to make more dangerous

    If the college educated “IDIOT” engineers would have designed the intersection correctly when they changed it from a 4-way to a traffic light, there wouldn’t be as many accidents!!! Stupid as hell to only put turn lanes/arrows on 162 and not on 64! The main objective for INDOT to install traffic circles, is to make intersections more maintenance free. Traffic flow and/or accidents are not their main concern!

  3. There was less accidents when it was a 4-way stop

    The round about will require people to yield. Most people have a hard time stopping for a red light. They drive faster when it is yellow to beat the red light. There needs to be slower speed zones before the lights. More law enforcement at peak times of travel. I think our state will be wasting money in a round about. I don’t think I have ever seen more stupid drivers out there than there are now. Wish they had drivers ed in school yet.

    The problem is that, when drivers see the light turn yellow most believe that it means floor it. You see I am in a hurry and you and your family need to get out of my way. Because I am important !!!

    Bretzville is not a Jasper intersection. Ferdinand middle school is located there so maybe it’s more of a Ferdinand intersection. Hmmmm

    The intersection is not the problem, people need to learn how to obey traffic lights and put their phones down while driving.
