Update: Small structure replacement to close State Road 56 in Scott County

SCOTT CO. — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. plans to close State Road 56 for up to 30 days starting on or after Monday, October 3, for a box culvert replacement project in Scott County.

Crews will be active just under two miles east of S.R. 39 near Finley Firehouse Road.

Traffic will be detoured along S.R. 56 to the Salem Bypass, to S.R. 60, and I-65. 

The $1.3 million contract was awarded to Dave O’Mara in January and also includes a similar project on S.R. 39 near Little York that is expected to reopen this week.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, avoid distractions, and use extra caution when traveling in and near active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
