INDOT plans for bridge work in Jennings County

Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with the state’s contractor Wednesday morning at Seymour District offices to schedule operations for installing thin bridge deck overlays at four structures in Jennings, Ripley and Dearborn Counties.

RAM Construction tentatively plans to place a 3/8-inch polymeric epoxy overlay in two lifts atop the single-span U.S. Highway 50 bypass bridge over CSX railroad tracks west of North Vernon. Overlay operations will occur north of construction activities for the U.S. 50 roundabout at County Road 450 West. This $335,000 project also includes work on the three-span State Road 3 bridge over Sand Creek, between North Vernon and Westport.

INDOT says that temporary signals will control single-lane traffic flow during overlay operations at each bridge.
