The lack of a traffic light at the intersection of U.S. 52 and State Highway 47, which is along the heavily trafficked I-65 detour, has caused two deaths. The Indiana Department of Transportation has coordinated with local officials to install a temporary traffic light in hopes of keeping people safe.
