The two short-term bridge closures on S.R. 135 in Washington County announced last week have been rescheduled due to weather.

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. now plans to close two S.R. 135 bridges near Palmyra for deck overlay projects on the following dates. 

Each bridge will close over separate weekends, from Thursday evening to Monday morning. 

Traffic will be rerouted along U.S. 150 and S.R. 56 during both closures.

  • S.R. 135 over Bear Creek: Thursday, July 15 (6 p.m.) to Monday, July 19 (5 a.m.), previously July 8 to July 12
  • S.R. 135 over South Fork Blue River: Thursday, July 22 (6 p.m.) to Monday, July 26 (5 a.m.), previously July 15 to July 19

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