Construction signage drawing complaints

By ROSS FLINT - rflint@shelbynews.com

Street signs remain up on the southwest side of the intersection of Harrison and Broadway streets, to the chagrin of some residents.

“I’ve gotten multiple questions about why the signs are still up and there’s no construction being done,” Mayor Tom DeBaun said during Tuesday morning’s Board of Works pre-meeting.

The signs were placed by the Indiana Department of Transportation for the construction along State Road 9 earlier this year and remain there. City Engineer Matt House said the warning signs have drawn complaints after being left behind after that section of the project was finished.

The only ones remaining are lead-in signs that have to remain posted until the final project’s acceptance, he said.

“So it’s annoying because they’re just sitting around downtown,” he said. “They have reasons they’re doing it. Usually have specific reasons why they have to do that.”

DeBaun said other debris on Harrison Street has also drawn complaints.
