Multiple Pipe Replacements Scheduled For State Road 64 Near Birdseye

(DUBOIS CO.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces multiple culvert pipe replacements on State Road 64 between St. Anthony and Birdseye.

Beginning on or around Tuesday, Aug. 4, INDOT maintenance crews will close S.R. 64 to begin replacing drainage structures. There are multiple locations for this operation. Crews will replace one pipe at a time and, once finished, will move on to the next. Each replacement will require a full road closure for excavation of the old pipe. Once work is finished, crews will fill the pavement cuts, allow them to compact under traffic and then return later to finish paving.

Work is expected to last for about three days, depending upon weather conditions. During the closure, local traffic will have access up to the point of closure. All through traffic should use the official detour following U.S. 231, I-64 and S.R. 145

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