State Road 164 Near Jasper To Close For Pipe Replacement

Last updated on Thursday, August 11, 2016

(JASPER) - The Indiana Department of Transportation announced State Road 164 will close beginning next Wednesday, August 17, while crews repair a damaged culvert east of Jasper.

Beginning on or around Wednesday, August 17, State Road 164 will close east of Jasper and west of State Road 545 to replace a culvert pipe running perpendicular to the highway. The operation requires removal of pavement and excavation work. Because of those factors, the road will be completely closed to through traffic, however local residents will have access.

Depending upon weather conditions, the closure is expected to be less than a week. During the operation, the closure will be in place around the clock. The official detour uses S.R. 545, S.R. 56, U.S. 231 and S.R. 164.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
