INDOT Crews Prepare for Storm_2380380204540972090

VIGO COUNTY, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation on Thursday closed the right lane on State Road 63 northbound between Bolton Road and Sanford Road due to an erosion control issue. 

According to INDOT, this is a safety measure until a slide correction project will begin this summer.

INDOT’s contractor GeoStabilizaion International will begin slide correction work on S.R. 63 in Vigo County, north of Terre Haute in late June or early July, weather permitting. Crews will install a soil nail wall to stabilize the embankment after deterioration occurred just outside of the roadway shoulder.. 

Substantial rain and wet conditions have led to this geological slide and erosion issues along the roadway. INDOT will continue to monitor this location to ensure the safety of the traveling public.
