Current Traffic Counts A&F is a premier traffic consultant in Indiana who conducted a study that shows Allisonville & 96th Street, traffic counts.
I found this interesting about the high cost of moving utilities. Below is a utility pole that would cost Fishers over a million dollars to move. Fishers is using the property on the southeast corner to work around this considerable expense.
It takes a long time to Fund, design, and construct a project like this roundabout, and I'm confident the citizens in this area will like it. I will be happy to answer any questions about the project and provide updates when available.
