Box Culvert Replacement Scheduled for State Road 57 Near Plainville

(DAVIESS CO.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a road closure for State Road 57 just outside of Plainville for a structure replacement.

Beginning today contractors will close S.R. 57 about two miles north of Plainville to replace a box culvert spanning Smothers Creek Tributary. During this project the road will be closed around the clock as it will require complete excavation and replacement of the previous structure.

Work is expected to last until the end of October, depending upon weather conditions. Local traffic will have access up to the point of closure. All through traffic should use the official detour following S.R. 58, S.R. 67 and S.R. 358.

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