MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – The southbound lanes on the U.S. 231 Bridge over Sugar Creek in Montgomery County will close starting Thursday, INDOT officials said.
According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, the contractor will be pouring the bridge deck approaches along with a new surface in the driving lane on the southbound bridge. Southbound lanes over the Sugar Creek Bridge will close late Thursday, near midnight, and reopen Sunday at 9 a.m.
INDOT officials said a detour will be in place for those traveling south. Traffic will be taken south onto Lafayette Avenue, then east onto U.S. 136 — or Market Street — then back to U.S. 231 in Crawfordsville, Ind. Police will be assisting motorists from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. every day.
The bridge deck overlay project on U.S. 231 was awarded to Schutt-Lookabill Co., Inc. for $1.4 million. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 31, 2014.
