State Road 46 Paving To Impact Traffic At Trackville Rd

By Indiana Department of Transportation, news release

Milling and paving is set to begin on Monday.

(Dearborn County, Ind.) - Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O'Mara Contractor Inc. will be milling and paving at the State Road 46 bridge over East Fork Tanner's Creek starting on or after Monday, August 23.

While work on the bridge has been taking place, the intersection of State Road 46 and Trackville Rd has remained open. This intersection will also be resurfaced at the same time, and heavy congestion and long wait times are expected. Paving should take approximately two days, weather permitting, and motorists are encouraged to avoid the area during that time. The detour for State Road 46 continues to follow State Road 1, I-74 and State Road 101. 

The State Road 46 bridge has been closed since late March for a deck replacement and widening project that is expected to wrap up in the next couple weeks. This work is part of a $2.3 million rehabilitation contract that also includes a bridge replacement on S.R. 46 over Laughery Creek near Batesville that was completed last year. The contract was awarded in January 2020 and is scheduled to be complete by October 31, 2021.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free in and near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
