The Indiana Department of Transportation is slated to have a crew beginning preventative maintenance work on the State Road 46 bridge over Otter Creek in Bartholomew County on or after Wednesday, May 15th. weather permitting. Crews will apply a latex overlay to extend the life of the current bridge deck.
INDOT says that a one-mile section of State Road 46, from Base Road to County Road 100 North, east of Columbus, will be closed for approximately 90 days while the contractor completes the project.
The official state detour for the closure is State Road 46 to State Road 3 to U.S. 50 to State Road 7 and back to State Road 46.
