MARTIN CO. – The Indiana Department of transportation announces a bridge project on US 50 near Shoals.
Beginning Monday, contractors will close one lane of the US 50 bridge spanning the East Fork White River between Capital Avenue and High Street. This project is for a bridge deck overlay. Workers will mill the top layer of driving surface, repair approaches and replace with new material.
During the project, one 12-foot lane of traffic will be open at all times. Loads wider that 12-feet should seek and alternate route using the nearest numbered state, U.S., or interstate routes. Work is scheduled to conclude in early July, depending upon weather conditions.
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
