I-72 Recreation Drive interchange construction photos

I-72 Recreation Drive interchange construction photos

Includes a glance at a portion of the
Interurban bicycle and walking trail.

I've seen three or four cars go past these signs, drive on the missing road and then try to do a 3 point turn in the mud further down the street. It seems quite clear to me that the road is indeed closed.

I'd like to see a giant map around there, or perhaps a well marked waterproof box like the realtors use to offer maps of the area to give lost tourists and locals a clue on how to get where they're going since Recreation Drive is closed on that side.

Although the road is closed, the Interurban bike/hike path
is still open and is getting a lot of activity.
