Don’t expect Johnson County’s long-awaited east-west corridor to provide a smooth, continuous ride on a highway-like road.
In fact, you might need to look at a map if you’re not familiar with the route.
Drivers will have to navigate three different east-west roads as they head across Johnson County, once segments of the long-planned project are complete. They’ll have to head south for a few miles at one point and then go north again.
No signs will tell motorists that they’re on an east-west corridor, but the route eventually will link three interstates and span more than 20 miles over three counties. But the route won’t be a straight shot like the Ronald Reagan Parkway that stretches across Hendricks County.
