Greenwood plans to start work in the next few weeks on the $21.5 million Worthsville Road widening project that’s expected to make travel east or west across Johnson County much easier.
The project to expand Worthsville Road to four lanes between U.S. 31 and Interstate 65 is part of an east-west corridor that county officials have been talking about for decades. The widened road will lead to the fifth Johnson County interstate interchange, not including the two serving Edinburgh.
Greenwood would end up with a new southern gateway off I-65. Whiteland and New Whiteland residents would get easier highway access. Residents from across Johnson County eventually will have an easier way to go east or west, without having to take more congested routes such as Smith Valley Road.
