The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a complete road closure for State Road 58 near Bedford for a culvert pipe replacement.

Beginning on or around Monday, April 4, INDOT maintenance crews will begin the process to extract and replace a culvert pipe across S.R. 58 between Vocational School Road and Rocky Creek West. This operation requires a full width pavement cut to excavate and replace the pipe. Workers will then fill the pavement cut with gravel, which will be allowed to compact under traffic conditions before repaving at a later date.

The project is expected to take about one day depending upon weather conditions. The road will close following the morning peak hours to accommodate school traffic. Local residents will have access up to the point of closure, but all through traffic should follow the official detour using S.R. 37, U.S. 50 and S.R. 446.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews
