State Road 39 to close for pipe work

Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews will replace a pair of large drainage pipes under State Road 39 approximately 1½ miles south of State Road 250 between Brownstown and Tampico — weather permitting — today.

The north-south highway will close at 8 a.m. between Jackson County roads 300S and 400S.

Personnel from INDOT’s Scottsburg unit will install three new 48-inch pipes to satisfy drainage concerns. All work is expected to be completed by 5 p.m.
