State Road 3 bridges in Greensburg to reopen Friday

The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to open all lanes and ramps at State Road 3 bridges that span Interstate 74 at Greensburg on Friday afternoon. Crews spent Thursday removing concrete barrier walls.

Traffic at the twin-bridge overpass has been restricted to a single lane in each direction atop the reconstructed northbound State Road 3 bridge, while the southbound bridge was being built. INDOT says that, in addition to opening the new southbound bridge, four cloverleaf ramps at I-74, which were closed in early April, will reopen to traffic.

INDOT says that this $3.7 million project replaces the two State Road 3 superstructures with new four-span bulb-T concrete beam bridges, as well as the construction of new highway approaches to the bridges. The work was done by Milestone.

INDOT says that workers will return to the site for several weeks this spring to remove temporary crossovers, as well as landscape and complete any remaining work.
