The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) entered into an agreement with the Town of Plainfield and Hendricks County to relinquish a portion of Indiana 267, known locally as Quaker Boulevard.
Avon Avenue north of U.S. 40 was also included as part of the agreement.
The effective transfer date was April 1. Plainfield will now oversee the snowplowing, pavement repairs, mowing, debris removal and traffic signal timing.
In return the town will receive about $20.5 million for local project improvements. Due to statutory requirements, Hendricks County will maintain responsibility for several bridge structures affected by the transfer.
