Longtime residents of Rocklane Road are seeing more trucks zip by every day, and they don’t like it.
Melvin Lawson and Gloria Seniour are neighbors on this stretch of road, located about 8 miles east of downtown Greenwood. They have seen large trucks on their road before, but both say the frequency and number of trucks has increased in recent weeks.
Part of the issue is population growth, which has brought more traffic to Johnson County and around Indianapolis. But another is the closure of Worthsville Road while Greenwood adds lanes and prepares for a new Interstate 65 interchange to be built.
