Road Work Begins: SR 47

A bridge replacement project on the State Road 47 Bridge over the north Fork of Little Raccoon Creek will resume work restricting traffic to one 10-foot lane, beginning on or after Monday, April 1. Motorists will be controlled at the bridge with a traffic signal. This bridge should be opened back to two lanes in early June of this year.

ICC Group Inc. was awarded the $2 million contract. This project also included a bridge deck replacement on State Road 47 just north of Crawfordsville, over Walnut Fork, that was completed last year.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has announced that State Road 236 will close just over two miles east of the State Road 59 east junction on or after Monday, April 1. This project will replace the bridge over the South Fork of Little Raccoon Creek.

The official detour follows U.S. 231 to U.S. 36 to State Road 59 and back to S.R. 236.  The roadway is scheduled to reopen October 15 of this year.

This project was awarded to Halverson Construction Company Inc. for $1.3 million.  This project also includes a small structure replacement on S.R. 59 just over 5 miles south of U.S. 36 that will occur next year.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces work will resume on the resurfacing project on U.S. 41 in Vigo County on or after Monday, April 1, weather permitting.

The contractor plans to resume work in the southbound lanes on the curb ramps and concrete patching along U.S. 41 the first week of April.  There is additional patching work remaining in the northbound lanes also. The concrete work will take place during the daytime but will have overnight closures that are needed for forming the curb ramps and allowing the patching concrete to cure.

Asphalt patching followed by resurfacing is scheduled to begin in mid-April in the northbound lanes first.  That work will take place Monday through Thursday north of Wabash Avenue between 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. and south of Wabash Avenue from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.

White Construction Company was awarded this contract for $7.1 million.  This project includes patching and resurfacing U.S. 41 from just south of I-70 through Terre Haute to State Road 63 on the north end. The curb-ramps will be updated to be ADA-compliant. Thin deck overlays were placed on the U.S. 41 bridge over Tippecanoe Street and CSX Railroad and on the I-70 bridges over Erie Canal Road last year.

This project is scheduled for completion at the end of June of this year.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announce a bridge replacement project on U.S. 41 on the bridges over Lost Creek located just over one mile north of Terre Haute will begin on or after Monday, March 25.  Motorists will be shifted into one 13 ft. lane in each direction on the northbound bridge while the contractor replaces the southbound bridge.

Milestone Constructors Inc. was awarded this project on U.S. 41 for $3.3 million.  This project will replace and widen both U.S. 41 Bridges over Lost Creek, located between Fort Harrison Road. and Budd Raod. This work is scheduled to be completed and the roadway reopened to traffic in mid-October.  The project is scheduled for completion in June of 2021.
