INDOT schedules asphalt patches on U.S. 50

Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor plans to make full and partial-depth asphalt patches on U.S. Highway 50 in Jackson and Jennings counties between U.S. 31 and the roundabout construction site at the west end of the North Vernon bypass, beginning Monday, June 11th.

Motorists will encounter flaggers at worksites during daytime hours.

Dave O’Mara, INDOT’s contractor for this $1.9 million rehabilitation project, will mill and resurface along an 8.3-mile section of U.S. 50 once these pavement repairs have been completed. The project calls for road/drive approaches to be paved and center-line sinusoidal waves cut to warn drivers of cross-lane drifting.

The contract completion date is September 30th.
