VIGO, CLAY COUNTIES, Ind. — The Indiana Department of Transportation announced plans to begin replacement of the State Road 63 northbound bridge over U.S. 41 southbound on or after May 1.
The roadway is scheduled to be closed through the end of September of this year.
The detour will take motorist on U.S. 41 northbound to a cross-over at Florida Ave. where a temporary traffic signal will allow U-turn access onto U.S. 41 southbound and then back to S.R. 63 northbound.
This project was awarded to White Construction Inc. for $3.2 million. It also includes a bridge deck replacement on State Road 59 in Clay County, located over two miles north of S.R. 246.
This work will begin May 1 as well. Traffic will be controlled at the bridge with a temporary traffic signal allowing for one travel lane across the bridge
