NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Work to convert one-way streets to two-way streets in New Albany begins this week.

The nearly $2 million project includes sign replacement, signal modification and installation of new pavement markings.

Pearl, Bank, Market, Spring and Elm Streets will all become two-way streets in downtown New Albany. The engineers behind the plan say it will make downtown New Albany safer and less congested.

Meanwhile, pavement markings will be updated on State Street between Market Street and Elm Street.

Current traffic counts on the streets being modified are:  

  • Elm Street - 8,500 vehicles per day
  • Spring Street - 10,400 vehicles per day
  • Market Street - 4,500 vehicles per day
  • Pearl Street - 1,900 vehicles per day
  • Bank Street - 1,000 vehicles per day
  • State Street - 9,100 vehicles per day
