February 10, 2017


The Indiana Department of Transportation officials met yesterday February 9th in their Seymour District offices with its contractor for a $189,336 small structure project scheduled for this spring on U.S. Highway 421 in Jefferson County.
T & T Pipe Renovations is charged with pipe lining at the drainage structure carrying a tributary of Indian-Kentuck Creek under U.S. 421 just south of the Grandview Cemetery located north of Madison near Jefferson Proving Ground.
The Scottsburg contractor will install a 48-inch elliptical polyethylene pipe measuring 98 feet in length.
Clearing operations will take in March.
Installation will occur prior to June 30.
Motorists may experience brief delays while trucks enter and exit the work site which is located 2.69 miles north of State Road 250. Flaggers will direct traffic on those occasions.
This comes right after last mont's announcement that also this spring, INDOT will cause traffic delays on State Road 7 for structures to be fixed at 1) Dupont over a tributary of Camp Creek, and 2) over Bear Creek just south of the Jennings County line.
INDOT will not close either structure until April 1 or later. One will close for up to 30 days, then the other will close for 30 days.
Milestone is the state’s contractor for that $594,856 bridge project.
Clearing operations and utility relocations at worksites are taking place this month.
The S.R. 7 structure at Dupont will be a 3-sided 11-foot reinforced concrete culvert measuring 32 feet side-to-side. A state highway detour will reroute motorists around the closure via S.R. 62, S.R. 256 and S.R. 3.
The S.R. 7 Bear Creek bridge located 7.15 miles north of S.R. 250 will measure 20½ feet in length with 32 feet of clear roadway side to side. The detour will utilize S.R. 3 and S.R. 256.
