Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Five Star Company plans to close sections of S.R. 58 starting on or after Monday, June 20, to complete a series of small structure replacements between S.R. 135 and S.R. 446 in Jackson and Lawrence Counties. The road was originally scheduled to close in early May, but was delayed due to utilities. State Road 58 will close for up to 30 days at each of the following locations:
- Starting on/after Monday, June 20: S.R. 58, 13.37 miles E of S.R. 446 at unnamed tributary to South Fork Salt Creek, between C.R. 550 W. and C.R. 650 W. in Jackson County
- Starting Late July: S.R. 58, 9.9 miles E of S.R. 446, between Pike Road and C.R. 980 W. in Jackson County
- Starting Late August: S.R. 58, 1.39 miles E of S.R. 446 at unnamed tributary to Leatherwood Creek, between Fairview Mundell Road and S.R. 446 in Lawrence County
The $1 million contract was awarded to Five Star in February, with a completion date in late October. Traffic will be routed along the official detour, which follows S.R. 446, U.S. 50 and S.R. 135. Access will be maintained for local residents; thru traffic should use an alternate route.
