State Road 11 in Jackson County to close this weekend

Replacement of a small drainage structure under State Road 11 at Dudleytown, just north of State Road 250 in Jackson County, has been rescheduled for this weekend. The Indiana Department of Transportation says the work was delayed by about a week due to a delay in getting the needed materials.

Temple & Temple, the state’s contractor, plans to remove an existing drainage pipe and replace it with a larger arched pipe measuring. They say that the work will require a closure of State Road 11 from 6 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday.

A state highway detour reroutes motorists via State Road 250, Interstate 65 and U.S. Highway 50.

INDOT adds that this $137,000 project also requires single-lane restrictions early next week. The is scheduled to be finished by August 31.
