I-69 To River Bridge Road Reopened

Last updated on Wednesday, June 5, 2013

(BIRDSEYE) - A 250-foot stretch of Interstate-69 that leads to the Patoka River Bridge has reopened after it sunk several inches just months after opening.

State officials say it cost a quarter-million dollars to bolster the highway in an area that overtops a recently-closed underground mine.

The sinking was noticed in January, but crews needed to wait until spring when warmer temperatures made paving possible.

Gohmann Asphalt, the company that initially paved that stretch, made the fixes, and the state footed the bill.
