INDOT says culvert pipes must be replaced.
(Franklin County, Ind.) - Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews from the Penntown Unit have been scheduled to replace culvert pipes next Monday, July 23 at two county road locations bordering State Road 46 near New Point.
Weather permitting, operations will begin at South County Line Road on the north side of S.R. 46 at 7 a.m.—closing the Franklin-Decatur County line road until noon.
After noon, INDOT crews will move to C.R. 400 South/South Pocket Road, a half-mile east of the first location. They will excavate across the roadway at the north approach to S.R. 46 and replace the existing drainage pipe. If more time is required to finish the installation, the county road will be reopened to overnight traffic, then closed again Tuesday morning for completion.
Both pipes are 24-inches in diameter, measuring 40 feet in length.
