Two 100-foot towers are being proposed for a U.S. 31 interchange being built in a northern Indianapolis suburb.
Westfield officials say the towers estimated to cost up to $1 million each would create an iconic image for the Hamilton County city.
The Indianapolis Star reports the masonry towers would be topped by a metal-mesh design with lights at the Indiana 32 interchange that's to be built as part of the state's project upgrading U.S. 31 to interstate standards through the area.
Mayor Andy Cook says he expects some people will criticize the plan, but he wants the city to have a unique gateway.
City council members must still approve funding for the project. Much of the interchange work is expected to start next year.
