State Road 58 bridges to be replaced in Bartholomew, Jackson counties

The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning to replace two bridges on State Route 58 later the spring, but work on the sites will start in the next few weeks.

INDOT is announcing that it will begin clearing the sites and removing trees at the bridges over Buck Creek in Jackson County and over two branches of White Creek in Bartholomew County in March. The state will replace the Buck Creek bridge in mid-July and the White Creek bridge about 8 miles west of Interstate 65 in mid-May.

The second bridge over White Creek’s south fork on State Road 58 in Bartholomew County will be overlaid with a new surface. That bridge will close in April for about 30 days

Milestone will be the contractor for the $1.1 million bridge replacement project.
