Bridge work to impede I-74 traffic at Greensburg

The construction of a bridge deck on State Road 3 in Decatur County will affect traffic on Interstate 74.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that its contractor is scheduling the work at the northbound State Road 3 structure spanning I-74 at Greensburg. Harry Maginity, INDOT spokesman, says that crews must place deck pans and rebar over I-74 traffic, then pour concrete. He says that this work requires closing interstate lanes while work takes place overhead.

INDOT says that one lane of I-74 will close in each direction on Wednesday, beginning at 7 a.m. Those lanes are scheduled to reopen by 2 p.m. this Friday. Maginity adds that there will be additional, single lane closures on I-74 in both directions on the following dates:

• Monday-Friday, June 27-July 1
• Tuesday-Friday, July 5-July 8
• Monday-Friday, July 11- July 15

Each week’s closures begin at 7 a.m. and will be lifted by 2 p.m. Fridays, says Maginity. He adds that Milestone is INDOT’s contractor for this $3,748,040 State Road 3 bridge replacement project that is building new northbound and southbound superstructures over I-74. INDOT adds that construction of the southbound bridge will begin later this summer.
