ZIONSVILLE, Ind. -- Leaders of two northern Indianapolis suburbs say they're worried about the safety of an Interstate 65 intersection and are asking state officials to make changes.

Commuter traffic from Indianapolis often backs up at the I-65 exit for Indiana 334 into the growing suburbs of Zionsville and Whitestown.

Zionsville Town Council president Jeff Papa tells The Indianapolis Star that he's not sure the Indiana Department of Transportation is fully aware of the interchange's dangers.

Agency spokeswoman Debbie Calder says it has completed several projects to ease congestion in the area, including an additional travel lane that was finished last year.

Traffic on I-65 could've been lessened with a proposed exit to Zionsville off I-865, but town officials didn't support the plan after area residents objected to it.
