Highway 62 is a disgrace.  The county seems to have gotten their roads pretty much under control and 62 looks like it does.  Pitiful.

I had a family member slide off on 62 this morning and had to get towed back home to Madison due to the pittiful shape 62 was inside the Clark County Line.

All the little country roads I drove on were clear.  Completely clear.  But 62 from Charlestown to 265 was awful.  Most places there is no pavement showing.  From what I see on facebook, it's even worse toward New Washington.  I would have been better off this morning to drive all backroads.

Hwy 62 should be maintained by the state?

 

The county roads in my area were great yesterday afternoon... I was surprised though at how poor hwy 60 was between Sellersburg and Bennettsville...

If it's done by state, I'd like to know who we pissed off, because it was clearly at the county line that they stopped.

It is State Road 62.  I think the city is responsible for any portion of the road inside the city limits, the rest is up to the State to maintain. At least that is the way it use to be unless snow removal is something else the State has dumped on the counties.

INDOT thinks they are responsible....

http://www.in.gov/indot/2337.htm

 

INDOT is responsible for state roads, interstates and U. S. routes including adjacent overpasses and ramps on these roadways. Construction and maintenance of these roads is also INDOT’s responsibility along with traffic control devices along these roadways, including signs and traffic signals. Local cities, counties and towns are responsible for all other roadways that are not a state road, interstate or U.S. route.

 

 

 

http://www.in.gov/indot/3222.htm

 

INDOT staff monitors multiple weather forecasts and deploys up to 2,000 drivers, mechanics, clerks and managers before predicted winter weather to work alternating 12-hour shifts, 7 days per week, if needed to keep its more than 28,000 lane miles of interstates, U.S. highways and state highways in Indiana as safe as possible

State highways are most definitely INDOT's responsibility.  I generally get a response on inquiries to INDOT from their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.../INDOTSoutheast

They may not claim it for snow removal but they did recently when Moore wanted to reduce the speed limit down by the gas station.

State Rd 62 and all  state roads are maintained by INDOT, regardless of if in city limits.  10th St is no longer SR 62 west of I-265 as it has been re-routed across 265 to New Albany.  INDOT maintains a maintenance yard in Clarksville but has closed the office.   You need to play the old "punch this buttton" game on the phone for a few minutes to MAYBE get someone in Seymour to answer.  I tried to report a malfunctioning traffic light for 45 minutes and finally gave up.

I think that you should give yourself a warning about behavior on this sight.  While you may not agree or like Mr. Grooms calling him what you did was really unnecessary and could of been handled better.  :no: :no: :no:

I don't think I'll do that... and here is why.

 

Grooms is an elected official and he has to suck it up and take it just like all other public officials that we discuss here on the Chatter. I've tried to talk to Grooms about his bill which basically outlawed pain medication for those that need it most... ( http://clarkcountych...scam/?hl=grooms ) He's hurt people and refuses to discuss the matter. So, until he talks to me about this, I'm going to tell people about Grooms whenever I have the opportunity. In a just world... this pos would be put in jail for hurting people the way he has... 

 

If you wish to argue this point any further please send me a PM and I'll be glad to discuss it. I'd rather not drag this thread any further off topic. 

 

Thanks

I see from this morning's paper that Toyota is looking at River Ridge, versus a site in New Albany. If I were the folks at River Ridge and whomever claims rights to the River Ridge property (River Ridge themselves, Clark County, Jeffersonville?), for that reason alone I'd make sure that highway was spotless if we could bring those kind of jobs here!
