Bridge Deck Repair and Resurface Set to Begin on State Road 257 Near Otwell

(PIKE CO.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a bridge project for State Road 257 near Otwell.

Beginning on or around Monday, March 9, contractors will close one lane of the bridge spanning the East Fork of the White River for patching and resurfacing. Crews will repair fatigued areas of the driving surface utilizing high-pressure water to identify areas that have weakened over time. Crews will then repair those sections and then will apply a new driving surface.

During the project, one lane of the bridge will be closed around the clock. Traffic will be controlled by a temporary signal. Lanes will be restricted to 11 feet. Wide and over-sized loads will need to seek an alternate route.

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