INDOT Plans Multiple Culvert Replacements on SR 145 Later This Month near Birdseye


BIRDSEYE -- The Indiana Department of Transportation announces multiple culvert pipe replacements on State Road 145 in both Perry and Dubois County.

Beginning on or around Monday, April 20 crews will begin working on S.R. 145 from I-64 to the junction of State Road 64 near Birdseye. Workers will be replacing multiple drainage culverts along this stretch, one at a time. This operation requires a full width pavement cut while they excavate and replace the pipe. Work on each culvert is expected to be complete within a few hours and work at each location has been scheduled around morning and afternoon peak hours.

Work on S.R. 145 is expected to take about 10 days depending upon weather conditions. Local traffic will have access up to the points of closure during the operations, however all through traffic will need to use the official detour following I-64, S.R. 37, S.R. 64 and S.R. 145.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
