Editorial: Widening Worthsville Road to start as early as spring

Daily Journal

Sometimes you wait so long for something to begin that you’re almost surprised when it starts.

That’s the feeling many of us in Johnson County had when last week Greenwood took some concrete and very public steps toward widening a major street and building a third city interchange on Interstate 65.

After years of planning, construction should start this year.

The Greenwood City Council unanimously approved borrowing about $30 million to build the interchange at Worthsville Road and widen the street to handle the increased traffic. The approval is the final one needed before construction can begin on a project that’s aimed at lessening congestion, spurring economic development and building a major east-west route that’s been talked about for decades.
