2-way traffic rolls out today on a section of Ellison Road

– Drivers used to traveling on the one-way section of a road near Interstate 69 and U.S. 24 will encounter oncoming traffic beginning this evening as the road opens to two-way traffic.

A quarter-mile section of Ellison Road that connects Liberty Mills Road and U.S. 24 and runs parallel to Interstate 69 is being converted from one-way to two-way traffic at 5 p.m., according to the Allen County Highway Department. Currently, Ellison runs one way north of Liberty Mills.

A new center turn lane along the northbound section of the connector road will improve access to hotels and other businesses.

The addition of a concrete island and signage will make Ellison’s intersection with Jefferson Boulevard a right-in/right-out only. That will permit eastbound traffic on Jefferson, which is U.S. 24, to turn right onto Ellison and for northbound traffic on Ellison to turn right onto Jefferson; other movements will not be allowed.

The county started the project in September. The timing of the switch coincides with the Indiana Department of Transportation’s widening of U.S. 24 East.
