Yesterday, members of the city of New Albany staff met with officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to discuss concerns of citizens regarding New Albany signage associated with the bridges project.
Mayor Gahan and a number of residents raised concerns that New Albany was not displayed on directional signage as you cross the new bridge into Indiana. INDOT informed city officials that they generally do not mix street names with cities in an effort to reduce confusion. However, a compromise was reached where INDOT would place signage indicating correct exits for New Albany. Residents should expect to see the updated signage within 6 months. Mayor Gahan would like to express his appreciation to the INDOT officials for their timely response to our concerns.
