Bretzville Junction improvements comingMay 10, 2013
From local sources
BRETZVILLE — Work to add a traffic signal and make additional upgrades to the Bretzville Junction could begin as early as Monday.
The Indiana Department of Transportation recently awarded a $1 million contract for work planned at state roads 64 and 162 to Lutgring Bros. of Tell City. In addition to replacing the caution light at the intersection with a traffic signal, INDOT also will construct dedicated left-turn lanes for northbound and southbound traffic on State Road 162.
Lutgring’s workers will start on or after Monday, according to INDOT spokeswoman Cher Elliott.
Motorists can expect narrowed lanes on State Road 162 as Lutgring begins dirt work for the added lanes. Crews will also begin the installation of electrical lines for the new signal, which will be activated once the new turn lanes have been constructed and all pavement markings are in place, Elliott said.
The project is anticipated to be completed in October.
Elliott said the new signal will stay predominantly green for traffic on State Road 162 and will be activated as motorists approach the intersection from State Road 64.
INDOT had earlier said the volume of traffic at peak usage times and the opening of Cedar Crest Intermediate School just north of the junction justified these upgrades.
