INDOT plans road project for Spencer county

From Local Sources

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions for a 12-mile resurfacing project on State Road 66 in Spencer County.

Beginning on or around Friday, July 24, contractors will begin restricting State Road 66 from about 2 miles east of State Road 61 to State Road 161 and then from State Road 161 to U.S. 231.

During this operation, around Aug. 30, crews will also resurface the bridge deck on State Road 66 over Dredged Ditch in Rockport. This is a moving operation and flaggers will be present to control traffic.

The project is scheduled to last until the end of November, depending upon weather conditions. During the bridge project, lanes will be restricted to 10 feet. Any loads wider than 10 feet will need to seek an alternate route using the closest state-maintained routes.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
