PIKE COUNTY -- The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane closures scheduled for State Road 57 near Petersburg.
Beginning on or around Tuesday, Sept. 24, contractors will begin restricting the bridge spanning Flay Creek just about 4 miles south of S.R. 56 for a bridge deck overlay project. During this project workers will be patching and resurfacing the bridge deck and traffic will be reduced to one 12-foot lane.
Restrictions will be in place around the clock. Weather permitting, work is expected to be finished in late October. Inclement weather could cause delays in the project timeline. While the project is active, motorists should leave extra time to get to their destination and avoid distractions while driving in the work zone.
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
