INDOT announces State Road 3 closure for culvert replacement

The Indiana Department of Transportation will replace a concrete culvert under State Road 3 in Decatur County. Harry Maginity, INDOT spokesman, says the replacement will take place two-miles north of the ongoing bridge replacement project on State Road 3 at Interstate 74 on the north side of Greensburg.

INDOT saya that its contractor, Dave O’Mara, hopes to remove the smaller drainage structure and replace it with a larger one over a single weekend. Maginity says that this project, expected to cost $197,363, will take place the weekend of July 15th or July 22nd. Whichever weekend is chosen, INDOT says that State Road 3 will be closed at the site, beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, with plans to reopen by 5 a.m. the following Monday.

INDOT says that a state highway detour routes motorists around the closure via I-74, State Road 244 and State Road 63.
