The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to initiate pavement repairs along State Road 111 approaching the Horseshoe Casino on August 20. Contracted crews will place asphalt patches on S.R. 111 between mile markers 16.5 and 16.9, and at mile marker 21.3.
These pavement repairs will restore normal traffic flow north of the casino where embankment slides damaged the S.R. 111 roadway.
Paul H. Rohe, Indiana’s contractor, is expected to be onsite for up to five days.
Meanwhile, personnel from GeoStablization International, INDOT’s geohazard specialty contractor, have mobilized at a slide site at the casino. Permanent mitigation measures are being taken along the Ohio River embankment just south of the boat. Once completed, a second S.R. 111 site will be reinforced across from the parking garage. This work is expected to continue into late October.
