State Road 64 to Close in Princeton
Closures required for pipe installation
PRINCETON, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is announcing that State Road 64 (S.R. 64) will be closing in Princeton for the installation of a drainage structure on the city’s east side. The closure will begin on Monday, July 9, to through traffic; however local traffic will have access to the point of closure, 0.40 miles east of the S.R. 65 east junction.
This closure is scheduled for five (5) days. During the closure crews will also install stop lights on each end of the work zone. When the roadway is re-opened to traffic, it will be one 12-foot lane and the stop lights will control traffic through the area. A second closure is currently scheduled for sometime in August and will be closed for nine (9) days. Another notification will be sent when the second closure takes place. The signal will continue to be utilized as crews finish the installation of the drainage structure. Once the structure is complete, the signals will be removed and crews will pave the area. Traffic will be controlled by a flag person during this part of construction.
During the closure of S.R 64, the official detour will route traffic on U.S. 41, S.R. 168 and S.R. 57. The overall project completion date for this project is December of this year.
The $1.3 million contract was awarded to Koberstein Contracting, Inc. of Princeton, Indiana, in April of this year. The project includes the installation of a new drainage structure under S.R. 64 between Washington and State Streets and relocation of sewer and water lines in the affected area.
INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot or www.trafficwise.in.gov .
