(LOOGOOTEE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions for a bridge on U.S. 50 in near Loogootee beginning Friday, April 1.

Depending upon weather conditions contractors will restrict the U.S. 50 bridge spanning a set of CSX Railroad tracks about two miles east of the U.S. 231 intersection. Workers will be performing a rehabilitation of the bridge including cleaning and pavement overlay. The bridge will be restricted to one lane during the duration of the project. Traffic will be controlled by temporary signals. Temporary barrier wall will be put in place as a safety measure for both the motoring public and contractor crews.

Work is expected to last until mid July depending upon weather conditions. During the restriction, loads over 11-feet wide will need to find an alternate route. Restrictions will be in place around the clock.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews. For construction updates and traffic alerts, follow INDOT on Facebook at and Twitter at, or access INDOT's TrafficWise website at
