Summit at Merrillville Road

Intersection Improvement

The City of Crown Point has seen large delays in traffic and pollution at this existing four way stop intersection. The city along with the help of Robinson Engineering, Ltd. (REL) completed a CMAQ application to install a traffic signal and perform geometric changes to minimize the delay of vehicles and decrease the amount of pollution created by vehicles back up at this intersection.

We performed topographic survey and geotechnical work, gathered traffic counts information in order to improve the function and safety of the intersection. The project was designed and will be built to current INDOT standards. The project will be built in the summer/fall of 2017.
