The Indiana Department of Transportation says that the contractor for a $4.3 million resurfacing project on State Road 46 between Columbus and Nashville plans to begin making pavement repairs today.

Flaggers will be onsite to direct motorists around moving work zones.

INDOT officials anticipate that these asphalt patching operations will continue, weather permitting, for approximately one week.

Milestone, the state’s contractor, will mill the pavement before applying a new 1.5-inch lift of asphalt surface on this 15-mile section of State Road 46. Meanwhile, full-depth pavement replacement of a 1200-foot section of State Road 46 at Tipton Lakes Boulevard near Columbus will occur after patching has been completed.
