Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Duncan Robertson Inc. plans to begin construction on or after Monday, May 3, at the S.R. 135 bridge over Bean Blossom Creek in Brown County.

The bridge is located just south of S.R. 45 and will be reduced to one 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals as work progresses on a bridge deck overlay project. 

The signals are expected to remain in place through early August, weather permitting.

This project is part of a $1.2 million contract that includes a small structure replacement on S.R. 45, just west of S.R. 135, also in Brown County.

Work is expected to begin on the structure replacement this summer. 

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
