The Indiana Department of Transportation met with its contractor Monday at the Seymour District office for a $542,408 bridge replacement project on State Road 250, east of Uniontown in Jennings County.
Dave O’Mara is INDOT’s contractor for removing and replacing the structure at Crooked Creek in Marion Township. A 24-foot, three-sided concrete box culvert with wingwalls will be installed sometime after May 1. This will require closing State Road 250 for 45 days.
The contract requires the contractor to reopen the east-west highway to traffic by Sept. 30. Crews are expected to be onsite in March to stake and clear the area for construction operations.
The culvert’s location is about 4½ miles east of Interstate 65 and 5½ miles west of State Road 3.
