(WAYMANSVILLE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced plans to reopen State Road 58 at its newly built bridge near Waymansville at a branch of White Creek in Bartholomew County by next weekend.

Officials say that the new single-span structure, located eight miles west of Interstate 65 in Jackson Township measures 41 feet in length with 35 feet of clear roadway side-to-side.

At the same time, INDOT's contractor will begin operations for removing and replacing State Road 58's single-span bridge over Buck Creek at County Road 1075 North in Jackson County. Officials say this requires closing State Road 58, about 4.5 miles east of State Road 258, as soon as Thursday, Aug. 10. INDOT says the hope is to reopen the road before Thanksgiving.

Drivers will continue to us the existing detour, which is:

  • Westbound traffic via I-65, U.S. 50, S.R. 11 and S.R. 258
  • Eastbound traffic via S.R. 258, S.R. 11 and I-65

INDOT says that this work is part of Milestone's $1.1 million contract to repair three bridges on State Road 58.
