Culvert replacements to close State Road 45 east of Bloomington

MONROE CO. — Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews plan to close a section of State Road 45 on Tuesday, October 4, to replace two box culverts east of Bloomington.

The road will close from approximately 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., between Unionville Elementary School (near Shuffle Creek Road) and N. Richardson Road. An additional closure is possible, also from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Wednesday, October 5, if needed. Local access will be maintained while work is in progress.

A series of culverts were replaced in this area in early August. Crews are returning to replace two additional pipes.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, avoid distractions, and consider worker safety when traveling through active work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
