Road closure set for U.S. 231 in Huntingburg

HUNTINGBURG — The Indiana Department of Transportation announced a complete closure on U.S. 231 in Huntingburg for a drainage improvement project.

Beginning or around next Monday, contractors will close U.S. 231 from State Road 64 to 10th Street in Huntingburg. Workers will replace a box culvert, installing new inlets and storm water pipes to work in conjunction with the existing drainage infrastructure just south of the railroad tracks at this location.

Work at this location is expected to take until the end of July, depending upon weather conditions. During the project, the road will be completely closed around the clock. Local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but all through traffic should use the official detour following State Road 64 and State Road 162.

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