As drivers get off the interstate and try to make a left turn to head into Franklin or Greenwood, they’re often stuck waiting, and vehicles line up behind them.
Maybe they need to stop and pick up groceries at one of the stores off County Line Road. They drive north on Interstate 65, exit and pull to the end of the ramp. As they look left, rush-hour traffic coming out of Greenwood rolls past. They look right, and motorists are headed to restaurants or shops along Emerson Avenue. Drivers who get off at State Road 44 in Franklin can run into the same problem trying to make a left turn as people go in and out of the city.
Drivers are faced with waiting for a safe opening, trying to make a speedy turn in front of traffic or, as some drivers headed into Franklin have learned, making a right turn and then a quick U-turn. But those options pose a constant safety concern.
