The following road projects are planned by the Indiana Department of Transportation.

COMMISKEY PIKE

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving, Inc. is scheduled to close Commiskey Pike (E C.R. 50 N) over I-65 on or after Tuesday, April 9, to complete a bridge deck overlay in Jackson County.

The closure will take place just east of U.S. 31 and is expected to take up to 11 weeks, weather permitting. Crews will perform clearing work and begin to place signage in the area prior to the start of construction. During the closure, motorists should use the official detour route which follows U.S. 31 to N C.R.1240 E.

This project is part of a contract awarded to E&B Paving in October 2023. INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and avoid distractions when traveling near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

GNAW BONE

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractors plans to conduct alternating lane closures along State Road 46 over Gnaw Bone Creek just west of Hoover Road beginning on or after Wednesday, April 10, to complete a bridge deck overlay project in Brown County.

The alternating lane closures will take place approximately 3.5 miles east of the S.R. 135 and S.R. 46 intersection and are expected to remain in place until late August, weather permitting. The planned lane closures will alternate between eastbound and westbound S.R. 46, while work is in progress. Temporary traffic signals will be utilized to conduct the planned lane closures. Crews will begin to place signage in the area prior to the start of construction. 

This project is part of a $1 million contract awarded to Dave O’Mara in August 2023. INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and avoid distractions when traveling near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

MONROVIA

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a temporary closure coming to State Road 42 between County Road 335 West (Everett Road) and C.R. 875 (Wellman Road) between Monrovia and Crown Center.

Beginning on or after Tuesday, April 9, crews will be closing this stretch of S.R. 42 to resurface the road and patch the asphalt.

The closure is expected to last through late fall but is weather permitting and subject to change.

The official detour around the closure is S.R. 42, to S.R. 39, to S.R. 142 to S.R. 42.

INDOT encourages all drivers to seek an alternate route, and avoid speeding and distracted driving in and around all work zones.
