Lapel - Lapel Police Captain Mike Barnes said it is going to take help from the public to make one of the town’s most dangerous intersections safer.
Barnes told the town council Thursday that about 80 percent of all traffic accidents investigated by the local department are done at the intersection of Madison CR 300 and Ind. 13.
During the Nov. 15 council meeting, Barnes said letters to the Indiana State Highway Department and elected officials could help in a quest to get automatic signals at the site.
Barnes’ comments came after the council discussed progress on a new gas station/convenience store was reported. The store is going up on the south side of town between the CVS pharmacy and Lapel Elementary School. It is slated to open in December.
