The short-term bridge closure on State Road 135 over South Fork Blue River has been postponed due to weather concerns over the past weekend, including possible rain and high humidity, which would cause project delays.

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. now plans to close this stretch of State Road 135 from approximately 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 5 to 5 a.m. on Monday, August 9. Traffic will be rerouted along U.S. 150 and State Road 56 during the closure.

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.

The work on State Road 135 over Bear Creek was completed as scheduled last weekend.
