INDOT contractor GeoStabilizaion International is scheduled to begin slide correction work on S.R. 111 in Floyd County, near Elizabeth, on or after Monday, July 22, weather permitting.
Work was originally scheduled to begin June 3, but was delayed due to contractor scheduling and an archaeological review in the area.
Crews will install a soil nail wall to further stabilize the roadway after deterioration occurred along the shoulder of the road. The repair will take approximately two months.
INDOT shifted lanes of S.R. 111 around the affected area in late May in preparation for work to begin. The road will remain open in both directions while work is completed and is safe for travel.
A project to relocate S.R. 111 away from the Ohio River is currently scheduled to let in August 2020, allowing work to begin that fall. The expected completion date is Thanksgiving 2021.
Wetter-than-normal conditions have led to a number of slides and erosion issues across southern Indiana. INDOT continues to monitor these locations to ensure the safety of the traveling public and will act appropriately as situations arise that may require road closures or restrictions.
