Reopening of SR 46 bridge spanning Fishers Fork Creek delayed

The reopening of the State Road 46 bridge spanning Fishers Fork Creek in Bartholomew County has been delayed until Wednesday afternoon.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced plans to reopen the bridge, weather permitting, two-and-a-half-weeks ahead of schedule. Contractors worked to remove and replacing the three-span structure located two miles west of State Road 9, just southeast of Columbus.

This nearly $1.4 million-dollar project was scheduled to have the bridge closed for five-months. INDOT had hoped to open the bridge on Tuesday afternoon, but undisclosed circumstances caused officials to delay the reopening by one day.
