Though the effect on the Greater Lafayette area has gotten more press, the closure of I-65 north has touched Frankfort as well.

This week on Ask the Mayor, we find out from Chris McBarnes what it’s meant to businesses and to commuters that his interstate exit is getting less traffic and that the prescribed detour leads people in the other direction when they turn onto State Road 28.

We also chat about drugs in Frankfort. What can a recent bust of four alleged drug dealers tell us about how much of a problem the city faces?

And when there are four arrests, does that make a dent in the problem or open up more space for others to fill?
