Shoulder closures begin Monday on S.R. 56 in eastern Washington County

WASHINGTON CO. – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. plans to begin work on or after Monday, March 15, on a small structure pipe lining project on State Road 56 in Washington County. The structure is located 0.58 miles west of S.R. 39.

Significant traffic impacts are not expected as crews will be mostly working off the roadway. However, shoulders will be closed in the area and lane closures with flagging will be possible for periodic movement of equipment and materials.

The $336,000 contract was awarded in December 2020 and is expected to be complete in early May, weather permitting. Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
