Road closure scheduled for pipe replacement on State Road 164 between Jasper and Celestine

DUBOIS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a complete road closure for State Road 164 between Jasper and Celestine.

Beginning on or around Thursday, April 7, INDOT maintenance crews will begin the process to extract and replace a culvert pipe across S.R. 164 between Steinbottom Road and S.R. 545. This operation requires a full-width pavement cut to excavate and replace the pipe. Gravel will be compacted and repaving will be at a later date.

The project is expected to take about one day depending on weather conditions. The road will close following the morning peak hours. Local residents will have access up to the point of closure but all through traffic should use the official detour following U.S. 231, S.R. 56, and S.R. 545.

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