TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Harrison High School is trying to ease the burden of traffic.

The Tippecanoe School Corporation has put out bids to build a new road behind the football stadium.

Currently, Harrison only has two exits so this would alleviate some traffic pains.

The road will be off County Road West 600 North.

It will run to near the old tennis courts where there will eventually be more parking.

TSC has had this in the master plan for years.

The old tennis courts were torn up last year and new ones have already been installed.

TSC's superintendent said this will be a giant help to community members.

"When school starts or when school ends or when we have community activities that really creates a traffic congestion in that area so this will alleviate much of that traffic congestion," said Hanback. 

Dr. Hanback said hopefully by the next TSC meeting in June, the bid will be closed and construction can begin in early summer.
