Bridge work planned near Otwell

From Local Sources

OTWELL— The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning a bridge project for State Road 257 near Otwell.

Beginning on or around Monday, March 9, contractors will close one lane of the bridge spanning the East Fork of the White River for patching and resurfacing. Crews will repair fatigued areas of the driving surface utilizing high pressure water to identify areas that have weakened over time. Crews will then repair those sections and apply a new driving surface.

During the project, one lane of the bridge will be closed. Traffic will be controlled by temporary signals. Lanes will be restricted to 11 feet. Wide and oversized loads will need to seek an alternate route.
