Bridge work is coming to State Road 156 south of Patriot on July 10.

(Switzerland County, Ind.) - The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to restrict traffic on State Road 156 near Wade Hill Road south of Patriot at a 3-span bridge over Fisk Creek at its confluence with the Ohio River next Tuesday, July 10.  Temporary signals on either end of the 143-foot-long S.R. 156 structure—located .97 miles south of S.R. 250—will control one-direction-at-a-time traffic flow through October. 

Force Construction of Columbus, INDOT’s contractor for this $976,250 Switzerland County bridge rehabilitation project, will pour new concrete end sections of the bridge deck—then overlay the entire deck with a thin polymeric epoxy.  Bridge repairs and new approach slabs are included in the project.
