Work on State Road 46 in Columbus continues

The Indiana Department of Transportation shifted State Road 46 traffic to the south side of the east-west highway at Tipton Lanes Boulevard Monday to facilitate pavement removal and placement of new concrete on the north side. Officials say the boulevard, just west of Interstate 65, will be closed for two to three weeks. INDOT says that once the 1200-foot section of concrete has been replaced on the westbound/north side, operations will shift to the eastbound lanes of State Road 46.

Milestone is the state’s contractor for this $4.3 million project which focuses on milling and resurfacing 15 miles of State Road 46 from Columbus to Nashville.
