S.R. 39 will close in Washington County beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 6, weather permitting, for a small structure replacement project located approximately two miles north of S.R. 56 in Little York.

The road will be closed to thru traffic from S.R. 56 to S.R. 256 and will be closed to all traffic at the site of the structure replacement, between Mill Road and the Gibson Township Fire Department. The road is scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday, September 9. 

The official state detour for the closure is S.R. 56 to I-65 to S.R. 256 to S.R. 39. Work will continue in the area with flagging operations through late September.

Motorists are encouraged to slow down and use caution in and near the work zone.
