INDOT announces SR 135 work at Nashville

Driving through Nashville may cause you some delays, beginning next month.

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Spokesman Harry Maginity says that INDOT officials met with contractor representatives and town officials on Friday morning. He says they discussed the implementation of a $695,596 asphalt pavement project for State Road 135, running through Nashville. Maginity adds that approximately 11,060 vehicles utilize that section of State Road 135, every day.

Maginity says that E & B Paving of Bloomington, the state’s prime contractor, plans to begin concrete work at curb ramps and sidewalks in early March. He adds that pavement repairs and resurfacing activities, between State Road 46 and Ridgeway Drive, should start after April 1.

INDOT says that the state’s contract calls for updating curb ramps to make them compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. In addition, sections of deteriorating sidewalks are scheduled be replaced before work on State Road 135’s mainline begins. Maginity notes that asphalt patching will precede milling and paving operations along the one-mile section of roadway.

INDOT says that while there will be single-lane restrictions as needed, no complete closures of the road are anticipated. Motorists will be directed around work sites by flaggers.

Maginity says that the contract completion date is June 30. However, he notes that the contractor hopes to finish mainline paving before the May 7th Spring Blossom Parade. Maginity also stresses that construction timelines are subject to the weather.
