Weekend Closure On State Road 160 Begins Friday Night In Washington County

(WASHINGTON CO.) – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. plans to begin structure replacement work this weekend on S.R. 160 in Washington County. The structure is located eight miles west of U.S. 31 between New Salem Road and Hickory Grove Road over a tributary of Springle Creek.

As a result, S.R. 160 will close at 7 p.m. Friday evening (June 19) between S.R. 60 and I-65 and will reopen by 7 a.m. on Monday, June 22. Following the full closure, single lane closures with flagging will be in place.

The official detour will follow S.R. 60 to S.R. 56 to I-65. The $195,000 contract was awarded in January 2020 and is expected to be complete by the end of July.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent.
