Police Commission has authorized a traffic study with a view to making the
three-way stop at the intersection of Roberts Road and Michael Drive a
unanimously at their meeting Thursday night to conduct such a study, after
Town Council Member Emerson DeLaney, R-5th, said that residents have drawn
his attention to the oddness of the three-way.
“It’s strange that
it’s a three-way,” DeLaney said. “If you’re going south on Roberts Road, you
don’t have to stop. But if you’re coming east on Michael Drive from the dead
end, you do have to stop. If you could take a look at that intersection and
see if there’s something you could do to make it safer.”

Indiana Uniform Manual of Traffic Control Devices.
