Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. is expected to close S.R. 258 east of Freetown in Jackson County on or after Monday, June 1, weather permitting. Crews will replace two box culverts, one near Persimmon Lake and the second further east at Coon Creek.
Work will start just east of C.R. 190 W. near Persimmon Lake Drive. Once the first structure is complete, the contractor will move to the second location between Base Road and C.R. 100 E. The road will close for 30 days at each location, weather permitting. Both locations will not be closed at the same time.
The official detour route will follow S.R. 11 to U.S. 50 to S.R. 446 to S.R. 58. The bridge replacement on S.R. 58 near Freetown will be complete prior to work beginning on S.R. 258.
Motorists should slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
