Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. plans to begin work on or after Monday, April 4, to patch, mill and repave a section of S.R. 46 in Bartholomew County.

Work is planned between S.R. 7 and just east of S.R. 9. Resurface work will take place under single-lane closures with flagging.

The $3.7 million contract also includes a pipe replacement between U.S. 31 and C.R. 450 E. State Road 46 is expected to close for up to seven days in early May while crews replace the pipe.

Traffic will be detoured along U.S. 31, S.R. 7, U.S. 50 and S.R. 3 during the closure. Access will be maintained for local residents.

The contract was awarded to Dave O’Mara last fall and is expected to be complete by the end of October 2022. INDOT reminds drivers to use extra caution, avoid distractions, and consider worker safety when traveling through active construction zones.

All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
