SR 156 Near Vevay Will Reopen With One Lane Monday

The state highway's slide area east of Vevay was closed to all traffic last week.

(Vevay, Ind.) - There’s some good news for motorists in Switzerland County.

State Road 156 shut down May 7 after uneven pavement on a slide area east of Vevay may have contributed to a motorcycle crash near Hunts Creek Road.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced over the weekend that S.R. 156 will reopen Monday with just one lane. A temporary traffic signal has been put in place to alternate one direction of traffic at a time.

INDOT says it is working with a contractor and utility companies to set a timeline to perform repairs to stabilize the roadway.
