Pipe replacements coming along State Road 264February 28, 2020
From Local Sources
FERDINAND — The Indiana Department of Transportation plans intermittent road closures in a little over a week along State Road 264 in the Ferdinand area for pipe replacement operations.
Beginning on or around Tuesday, March 10, INDOT maintenance crews will begin replacing drainage structures across State Road 264 from just outside of Ferdinand’s town limits to the area of County Road 900S.
There are multiple drainage structures within the project limits that will require full excavation, according to INDOT. Once pipes have been replaced, crews will fill the sites with fill gravel and allow that to compact over a few days. They will later come back and replace the pavement.
Work is expected to last about four days, depending upon weather conditions. Crews will begin work each morning after any school traffic has cleared, and in most cases, a pipe can be replaced before the end of the school day.
The official detour will involve using state roads 64 and 162.
In announcing the work, INDOT urged drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
