Culvert replacement work on State Road 3 in Decatur County is set to begin next week. The Indiana Department of Transportation says its contractor will begin replacing the existing culvert at Poplar Root Creek, located 8.6 miles north State Road 7 on Tuesday, September 4th. This work is dependent on the weather.
INDOT says that this work, just south of Sardinia, will close State Road 3 for up to 20 days. A signed detour will route drivers around the site via State Road 46, U.S. 31 and State Road 7.
Replacement of a State Road 3 small structure at Wyaloosing Creek, about 16 miles north of State Road 7, just north of Westport, will be scheduled after the Poplar Root Creek culvert is put in place.
