Resurfacing project set for State Road 11 in Jackson County

A resurfacing project for State Road 11 is set to begin in the spring

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Spokesman Harry Maginity says the agency has launched a nearly $1.5 million preventative maintenance project in Jackson County. He says the work includes the patching and paving of six-miles of State Road 11 between U.S. Highway 50 and Interstate 65.

Maginity says that Dave O’Mara, the state’s contractor, is expected to begin work after April the first. INDOT’s contract calls for all work to be completed by September 16.

Maginity says the work calls for full, and partial-depth, pavement patching, milling and resurfacing. In addition, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps will be installed.

INDOT adds that staking and some preliminary activities may occur in March before the work begins in-depth. Maginity says these preliminary activities should only result in brief interruptions to traffic flow, which counts for 11,610 vehicles per day.
