Construction resumes Tuesday on US 50 in Seymour

(JACKSON CO.) – Construction is scheduled to resume Tuesday, March 2, on the pavement reconstruction contract that began last year along US 50 in Seymour. A traffic switch is planned between Agrico Lane and Sandy Creek Drive to allow for storm sewer work to begin.

US 50 from Agrico Lane to Sandy Creek Drive
On or after Tuesday, all traffic will be moved to the south side of the barrier wall between Dupont Drive and Starbucks for storm sewer work. This configuration is expected to be in place for approximately two months. Additional storm sewer activity will take place from the Walmart Distribution Center entrance to Cloverleaf Drive. Future closures are planned in this area for pipe installations and will be communicated at a later date.

Sandy Creek Bridge/Multi-Use Path
Bridge work over Sandy Creek began last spring and will wrap-up with sidewalk construction along the westbound side of the bridge. A multi-use path will be built with the rest of the westbound corridor, which is scheduled to begin following the completion of storm sewer work this spring.

I-65 Ramps/Signals
No impacts to the entrance and exit ramps at I-65 are planned during this phase of construction. Motorists should expect temporary ramps later this spring as work progresses on the westbound side of the roadway. Traffic signals will be upgraded at Myers Lane, Sandy Creek Drive, Steven’s Way/Commerce Drive, and US 31.

Intersection improvements at US 31 and bridge painting are also included in the contract. The intermediate completion date is October 31, 2021, with activity continuing through the summer of 2022.

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