Flagging Begins Today on Hardy Lake Road for Structure Replacements

(SCOTT CO.) – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. plans to implement lane closures with flagging on Hardy Lake Road starting today (Feb. 5) to continue work on a multi-structure replacement project that began last month.

Lane closures will be in place north of Harrod Road through the end of next week, weather permitting.

The project is divided into three sections, with two 30-day full closures. The first closure from Burn Road to Harrod Road will remain in place through mid-February, when the second is expected to begin between S.R. 256 and Burn Road.

Hardy Lake Rd. 2-5-21

The official detour for both closures will follow Whitsitt Road to Burn Road and/or Harrod Road. Local access will be maintained for residents in the area.

The $894,000 contract was awarded in August 2020 and is expected to be complete by April 30, 2021, however, crews may remain active through late August. Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free in and near work zones. All work is weather dependent and schedules are subject to change.
