(GNAW BONE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation will close State Road 135 South at Gnaw Bone Creek in Brown County for two months beginning in early March.

The 123-foot-long concrete bridge near the Brown County Humane Society will get new pavement approaches and repairs to bridge piers.

INDOT says the project to replace the bridge superstructure will cost $746,792.

Schutt-Lookabill Company of Indianapolis, the state's contractor, plans to begin to remove and replace the bridge deck and rails on Monday, March 2. They hope to have the job done by April 30.

All traffic will be rerouted to State Road 46, I-65 and State Road 58.

The Brown County Democrat reports, when water covers State Road 135 South in the Camp Roberts area, locals often take Mount Liberty Road from State Road 46 in Gnaw Bone to Valley Branch Road, which intersects with State Road 135 South at the elementary school.
