U.S. 50 work in Jennings County to begin next week

Contractors are scheduled to begin preliminary work next week on a $3.1 million patching and paving project on a 9.7-mile section of U.S. 50 in Jennings County.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that work will take place approximately two miles east of State Road 3 to nine miles west of U.S. 421.

Patching is expected to begin on or after Monday, July 8, followed by milling and paving. The schedule is dependent on the weather.

Motorists should expect lane closures along the route, with flaggers to maintain traffic. You are reminded to use caution throughout the work zone and and avoid distracted driving.

The project is expected to be complete by Halloween.
