Road to remain closed through early May, followed by lane closures and flagging
Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. plans to extend the closure of Hardy Lake Road in Scott County as early as next week.
The road is currently closed between Burn Road and Harrod Road but will expand to between S.R. 256 and Harrod Road due to unforeseen utility relocation issues.
Lengthening the closure will help expedite the project following utility delays.
The official detour will follow Whitsitt Road to Harrod Road. Local access will be maintained for residents in the area.
The closure is part of an $894,000 multi-structure replacement project that began in mid-January.
Hardy Lake Road is expected to reopen by early May, followed by lane closures and flagging through the end of the month. All work is expected to be complete prior to the Memorial Day holiday.
Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free in and near work zones.
All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
