(Richmond, IN)--The primary question on the minds of most Richmond residents as it relates to the Depot District overpass replacement project involves how they’re supposed to get around it.  The official detour will be posted as I-70 to U.S. 40, but that’s only because INDOT is restricted to using state routes as detours and everyone knows that’s far from the quickest detour.  Here’s an INDOT project engineer talking about one detour route for vehicles headed south:  "J Street, south on 12th to North A.  Now, obviously, on this type of job there won't be one local detour.  We fully anticipate people will be taking a hundred different streets to get around this."  The start date has now been pushed back slightly to the end of next month.
