State Road 57 Closed At White River Bridges In Newberry

Last updated on Tuesday, February 5, 2013

(NEWBERRY) - INDOT has announced that State Road 57 will be closed at the White River Bridges at Newberry.

It will be closed between State Road 58 in Elnora to State Road 54 at the Lighthouse Junction, between Switz City and Bloomfield today through 7 p.m. Thursday.

INDOT says the maintenance work is being performed so the existing bridge structures can remain open during the construction of the new bridges later this summer.

In August, INDOT announced plans to construct a new $15.5 million State Road 57 bridge over the west fork of the White River, with work to start in the spring of 2013.

The existing bridges were built in 1940.
