Scatterfield interchange improvements outlined

Roundabout and realigned 60th Street work planned

ANDERSON – Within a few months, a main commercial interchange next to Interstate 69 will receive a major facelift.

The Anderson City Council last week approved a resolution amending the redevelopment plan for improvements to the intersection of 59th Street and Scatterfield Road on Anderson’s south side.

“This is an opportunity to redesign the road at the intersection,” Greg Winkler, director of the Anderson Economic Development Department, said.

Winkler said the former Days Inn has been demolished to make way for new commercial development and there are plans to demolish the former Holiday Inn. He said Tom Wood Honda will be constructing a new dealership on the Holiday Inn site. The two sites are separated by Scatterfield.

Plans for the west side of Scatterfield Road include the construction of a roundabout that will have five spokes leading into it. The 90-degree turn on 60th Street will be removed and the new road will cut across a portion of the former Days Inn parking lot.

Brian Craig, project manager for GRW Engineering, said there will be three lanes connecting 59th Street to Scatterfield Road with a designated right turn and left turn lane.

He said there will be two lanes for traffic on 60th Street with a planned center turn lane.

“This will provide better traffic flow to the new Ivy Tech facility,” Craig said.

Winkler said discussions to create a roundabout began shortly after Ivy Tech decided to build an almost $20 million, 85,000-square-foot facility on 38 acres of land on the north side of I-69.

He said the project will not only improve traffic flow in the area but will give the intersection more of a “gateway” presence into Anderson and help with two major development projects.

Winkler said along the redesigned 60th Street corridor there will be space available for commercial development to the west and on the east side between the road and the existing Ricker’s Convenience Store and Waffle House restaurant.
