BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind.–The Indiana Department of Transportation shifted State Road 46 traffic to the south side of the east-west highway at Tipton Lakes Boulevard on Monday. The move was done to facilitate pavement removal and placement of new concrete on the north side of the roadway. Tipton Lakes Boulevard will be closed at S.R. 46 for two to three weeks.
Once the 1200-foot section of concrete has been replaced on the westbound/north side, operations will shift to the eastbound lanes of State Road 46.
Milestone is the state’s contractor for the $4.3 million project which focuses on milling and resurfacing 15 miles of S.R. 46, from Columbus to Nashville. Milling operations are expected to begin next Tuesday, July 17. INDOT flaggers will direct motorists around moving work zones.
