INDOT announces road repairs underway in North Vernon

Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor for the state’s $823,000 repair and resurfacing project along 1.8 miles of State Road 3/State Road 7 at North Vernon is saw-cutting pavement for repairs between Walnut/Buckeye Street downtown and the U.S. Highway 50 bypass on the north side.

Dave O’Mara crews will be patching the north-south roadway over the next several weeks. Once repairs have been made, surface pavement will be milled and a new 1½-inch asphalt overlay put in place.

This preventative maintenance project also calls for new ADA-compliant curb ramps at Main Street and installation of signal loops at Walnut, Poplar and Hurley Drive where a separate traffic signal modernization project is currently underway.

The contract calls for all work to be completed by mid-November.
