US 150 Bridge Restrictions To Start In Mid-May
Indiana Department of Transportation officials met recently at Seymour District offices with contractor representatives, subcontractors and design engineers to schedule mobilization for an $865,000 bridge rehabilitation project on U.S. Highway 150 in Floyd County. Work is slated to begin in mid-May.
Dave O’Mara, Indiana’s contractor, will hydro-demolish the exiting bridge deck at U.S. 150’s 3-span slab structure over Richland Creek, located just east of State Road 335 in Greenville Township. The North Vernon contractor will then install a new 1¾-inch latex modified concrete bridge deck, reinforce highway shoulders and pour new bridge approaches.
Motorists will experience up to 130 days of single-lane restrictions. Temporary signals at either end of the U.S. 150 Richland Creek structure will regulate one-direction-at-a-time traffic flow. U.S. 150 has a traffic count of 7,820 vehicles per day at the construction site.
