(MEDORA) - Indiana Department of Transportation officials plan to close State Road 235 at White River on Monday, August 13 for installation of a bridge deck overlay and construction of new bridge approaches.

During the 60-day closure, motorists are advised to detour via S.R. 135 and U.S. Highway 50.

The S.R. 235 bridge over White River's East Fork is located east of Medora, 2.43 miles north of S.R. 135. Traffic count is 820 vehicles per day.

This bridge rehabilitation operation is part of a $2,230,246 4-structure replacement project in Jackson County contracted to E & B Paving.

Under the contract, a 4-sided box culvert has been installed on S.R. 235 5.8 miles north of S.R. 135 carrying a tributary to White River. Intermediate pavement lifts have been placed - allowing two lanes of continuous traffic flow after an 11-day closure - but surface asphalt has yet to go down.

Flaggers will be onsite for surface paving, placement of shoulder stone and guardrail installation.

On S.R. 135, a deck extension has been poured at the 3-span 132-foot-long bridge over Hough Creek in Brownstown. Bridge approaches are scheduled to be poured beginning next week. Meanwhile, single-lane traffic controlled by temporary signals continues while application of a bridge deck overlay takes place on one-half of the structure at a time. This bridge is located 0.96 miles south of U.S. 50.

Finally, replacement of a culvert on S.R. 250 carrying Hough Creek at Brownstown is scheduled to begin within the next several weeks. Installation of the new 16- X 5-foot reinforced box structure measuring 26-feet in width will require a 30-day closure.

Motorists are advised to detour around the site via S.R. 11, U.S. 50 and S.R. 39.

Traffic count at the structure is 2502 vehicles per day.
