(UNDATED) - Delayed several weeks by utility relocations and heavy rains, the Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close State Road 135 near Freetown for culvert removal and replacement on Tuesday.

INDOT officials anticipate this closure at a branch of Salt Creek's south fork about 5.2 miles north of U.S. Highway 50, will remain in place for approximately three weeks.

Once in place, crews move north on State Road 135 to a branch of Hamilton Creek, located 7.6 miles north of State Road 58 in Brown County, just east of Christianburg Road. A 142-inch arch culvert will be constructed there requiring a 30-day closure of the north-south highway.

INDOT officials add that work continues at the double-arch bridge on State Road 135 at Little Bean Blossom Creek, about 1.7 miles north of State Road 45 in Brown County. They say the arch ring has been removed and is being replaced. A 75-day closure is in effect.
