(BROWNSTOWN) - Indiana Department of Transportation's specialty contractor for thin bridge deck overlays is restricting motorists to single lanes at four U.S. 50 structures west of Brownstown.

Operations are currently underway at the U.S. 50 bridge spanning an overflow of White River 0.72 miles east of SR 135's north leg.

The overlay project introduces a new type of traffic control device. Portable traffic signals at either end of the bridge use radar to detect vehicular movement -- extending "green light" durations when longer queues are present.
