State Road 37 Project in Mitchell Ahead of Schedule

(MITCHELL) – Indiana Department of Transportation officials report that the State Road 37 Project in Mitchell is running ahead of schedule.

Phase one of the project to restore the concrete pavement from State Road 60 to US 50 is officially a week ahead of schedule.

Crews were originally expected to wrap up work at the beginning of August.

However, good weather has allowed crews to progress ahead of schedule.

Phase two will begin today (Monday) as crews will mirror the current lane closures with the northbound lanes reopening.

The new traffic patterns will see southbound 37 closed with two-way traffic on the northbound side.

Lanes will be restricted to a width of 11 feet and restrictions will be in place around the clock.

Work on phase two is scheduled to be completed by the end of October, depending on the weather.
