Comments on the pre-determined Mt. Tabor deforestation and auto enrichment outcome can be given on Jan. 2 at 7:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church (1752 Scheller Lane).


The Green Mouse received a message.

It looks like the city is posting the notice for the Mt. Tabor project today – they are trying to skirt open public comments again. They are also cutting out half of the project citing money issues. Maybe if they would leave the intersection alone, they could do their sidewalks all the way.

Indeed. I don’t suppose any of this will prevent the deforestation slated to begin the following day.

Notice of Public Information Meeting 

The City of New Albany will hold a public information meeting on Tuesday January 2, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. for the reconstruction of Mt. Tabor Road between Grant Line Road and Charlestown Road. The public information meeting will be held in Wagner Hall at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, located at 1752 Scheller Lane, New Albany, Indiana. 

The purpose of the public information meeting is to present additional information on the Klerner Lane and Mt. Tabor Road intersection, development of long-term slope stability solutions and overall project limits. The presentation will afford interested persons an opportunity to become better informed and provide written comments. 

The purpose of the project is to reconstruct Mt. Tabor Road between Grant Line Road and Charlestown Road, implement intersection improvements at Klerner Lane, construct curbs and gutters for storm water control, and provide pedestrian pathways. The total project length is approximately 1.1 miles and follows the existing horizontal alignment of Mt. Tabor Road from Grant Line Road to Charlestown Road. 

At the Klerner Lane and Mt. Tabor Road intersection, a four -way stop controlled intersection was proposed. As part of the final design, the four way stop controlled intersection was revised to a signal controlled intersection, based on a formal Traffic Signal Warrant Study and Capacity Analysis that was completed. 

In addition, as part of the final design the project limits were revised to more closely match the allocated construction funding. Final plans were developed to reconstruct Mt Tabor Road from Grant Line Road to approximately 200 feet past the proposed signalized intersection with Klerner Lane (Project 1). The remainder of the project from 200 feet past Klerner Lane to Charlestown Road is now anticipated to be constructed in a future project (Project 2). 

Written comments will be accepted at the public information meeting and for seven (7) days after the public information meeting is held. Representatives from the engineering design firm, Beam, Longest and Neff, LLC, will be available to address questions. In accordance with the “Americans With Disabilities Act”, if you have a disability for which the City of New Albany needs to provide accommodations, please call Mr. Brian Shaw, of Beam, Longest and Neff, LLC at (317) 849-5832, or send an email to by December 29, 2017.
