(BROWN CO.) - The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close State Road 45 on Monday, just west of Helmsburg in Brown County, for a $1.3 million bridge replacement project at Lick Creek.

INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that State Road 45 will close between Lick Creek Road and the project's end-point, about 0.3 miles west of Lick Creek Road in Jackson Township.

A state highway detour will route motorists around the bridge site via State Road 46 and State Road 135.

INDOT contractors will demolish the existing State Road 45 bridge at Lick Creek and replace it with a three-span, 100-foot-long, continuous reinforced concrete slab structure measuring 30 feet, side-to-side. M

The bridge should be completed by September.

INDOT says this project will affect a number of drivers. Maginity says that State Road 45's traffic count is 1,860 vehicles per day, while Lick Creek Road has a traffic count of 1,000 vehicles per day.
