State Road 142 Plans to Close for a Slide Correction Project

(MORGAN CO.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces State Road 142 will close on or after Monday, February 8 just west of Wilbur for a slide correction project to begin.

The work is expected to take three weeks, reopening the road Friday, February 26. The official detour will follow S.R. 39 to S.R. 42 and back to S.R. 142.

INDOT’s contractor GeoStabilizaion International will begin slide correction work on S.R. 142. Crews will install a soil nail wall to stabilize the embankment after deterioration occurred just outside of the roadway shoulder.
