New Traffic Pattern at Kaspar and IN162

This morning, INDOT crews are creating a right turn lane from eastbound IN162 into the Kaspar Gate. This comes after the Town Council made the request to INDOT to reduce traffic conflicts at this intersection. The step takes out the confusion at this intersection and should lead to safer travel into the town of Santa Claus and Christmas Lake Village.
