Full road closure scheduled for State Road 64 near Birsdeye

DUBOIS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a full road closure for State Road 64 near Birdseye for a drainage structure replacement project.

Beginning on or around Tuesday, June 15, contractors will close S.R. 64 from Kyana Road to Pine Ridge Road to replace a box culvert. This operation requires a pavement cut across all lanes of traffic, excavation and replacement of the drainage structure.

During the operation, the road will be closed to through traffic. Local traffic will have access up to the points of closure. All others should use the official detour following S.R. 145, I-64 and S.R. 162. Work is expected to be complete around mid-August, depending upon weather conditions.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
