(Ripley County, Ind.) - Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Sunesis Construction plans to reopen the S.R. 62 bridge over Caesar Creek in Ripley County Friday afternoon (May 14) following a deck overlay project. 

The same afternoon, crews plan to close S.R. 62 at a box culvert located west of Friendship between Cave Hill Road and Olean Road, approximately four miles east of S.R. 129. The road is scheduled to remain closed for around four weeks while the structure is replaced. The official detour will follow S.R. 129 to U.S. 421 to U.S. 50, back to S.R. 62.

The $550,000 contract was awarded in December 2020 and has a final completion date of August 31, 2021. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

State Road 62 is scheduled to be open for both the Friendship Flea Market and NMLRA National Championship Shoots in June and September.
