Daytime lane restriction Wednesday on State Road 60 near Mitchell

LAWRENCE CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces daytime lane restrictions for State Road 60 near Mitchell.

Beginning on or around Wednesday, June 23, contractors will begin paving operations on S.R. 60 between the intersection of S.R. 37 to the Orange and Washington County line. During this operation, crews will mill away the top layer of asphalt and apply a new driving surface.

Work will be performed during the daytime hours with traffic being controlled by flagging operations. During the project, open lanes will be restricted to a width of 12-feet. All wider loads should seek an alternate route using the nearest numbered state, U.S. or interstate routes.

Depending upon weather conditions, work is expected to be complete by the beginning of September. INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
