Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor for the $1,458,900 preservation project on State Road 64 began milling and resurfacing operations this week with flaggers directing motorists around a paving train that includes a milling machine, motor paver, compaction rollers and construction trucks. If weather permits, nearly half of S.R. 64 paving operations may be completed before Friday’s hiatus for the Memorial Day weekend (MAY 27-30).
E & B Paving of Clarksville, the state’s contractor, has finished pavement repairs within the 4.8-mile section of S.R. 64 from Interstate 64 to the Floyd-Harrison County line. Installation of ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps at Georgetown was completed last Friday.
Milling and placement of a 2-inch asphalt overlay should continue—beginning Tuesday—throughout next week. Once mainline paving has been accomplished, driveway and street/road approaches will be resurfaced. This will require approximately 10 days of additional single-lane restrictions on S.R. 64 at individual worksites.
The east-west highway has a traffic count of 22,650 vehicles per day.
