Boone County Commissioners Announce Temporary Lane Closure on CR-300 Due to Lily Lebanon Project
BOONE COUNTY, Ind – The Boone County Commissioners received information on November 6 from Lilly and are notifying the public of a temporary lane closure on County Road 300 North (CR-300 N), eastbound traffic only, that began on November 6. This lane reduction is a result of the ongoing Lily Lebanon Project, a significant project and infrastructure improvement initiative in the county. The road is only open for east bound traffic and closed to west bound traffic.
The closure will affect the stretch of CR-300 N between US Highway 52 and Witt Road, specifically on the south side of the Lily Lebanon Project site campus. Motorists are advised to exercise caution and expect delays, particularly in the vicinity of the intersection of CR-300 N and State Route 39 (SR-39).
The lane reduction is expected to last for a duration of five weeks, as crews work diligently to move this restriction along.
Boone County Commissioner President, Donnie Lawson, commented on the temporary lane closure, saying, “We understand that this lane reduction will inconvenience some of our residents. The goal is to have this work completed as quickly as possible to minimize this inconvenience. Upon completion, these improvements will enhance safety and connectivity as development occurs in Boone County. We appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation during this time.”
The Boone County Commissioners express their gratitude to the community for their understanding and cooperation.
