Pipelining project begins today on S.R. 160 in Washington County

WASHINGTON CO. – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor MAC Construction plans to begin work next week on a small structure pipe lining project on State Road 160 in eastern Washington County.

The structure is located approximately 11 miles east of S.R. 60 near Bunker Hill Christian Church.

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 $367,000 contract also includes a structure on S.R. 60 in Clark County near Bennettsville. Both projects are expected to be complete by the end of July, weather permitting.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
