JACKSON/WASHINGTON CO. — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Force Construction Company plans to close the State Road 39 bridge over Pond Creek on or after Tuesday, July 5, to complete a superstructure replacement project in Jackson County.
The bridge is located between S.R. 256 and S.R. 250 and will remain closed for up to 90 days for construction. Traffic will be rerouted along the official detour, which will follow S.R. 250, U.S. 31, and S.R. 256.
Following completion of work at Pond Creek, contract crews plan to close S.R. 39 at a second location to complete a structure replacement project. The structure is located just under eight miles south of S.R. 250 in Jackson County and will remain closed for up to 30 days.
The $1.5 million contract also includes work on the S.R. 39 bridge over Cammie-Thomas Ditch, which is currently expected to reopen in early July. The contract completion date is October 31, 2022.
INDOT reminds drivers to use extra caution, avoid distractions, and consider worker safety when traveling through active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
