Local Road Construction To Continue


The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced there will be lane restrictions on I-70 eastbound in Clay County beginning Sunday, June 14 between the 23- and 25-mile markers. One 16-foot lane will remain open from Sundays at 9 p.m. until Fridays at 6 a.m. The contractor will be overlaying the bridge decks over Birch Creek and the east fork of Birch Creek. I-70 westbound lane restrictions will begin after the July 4 holiday. Work is scheduled to last approximately three weeks in both directions.

Ragle Inc. was awarded this $1.9 million project. INDOT encourages drivers to slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through this and all work zones.

INDOT announced work will begin on or after Monday, June 15 on the U.S. 136 Bridge over the Wabash River just west of Covington. Traffic will be controlled at the bridge with a traffic signal allowing one lane at a time with this work lasting through September 12. This is for the contractor to patch and overlay the deck.
