SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — INDOT has announced a road closure that will affect folks who regularly drive on State Road 159 south of Dugger.

According to INDOT, the two-and-a-half-mile segment of SR 159 will be closed to allow crews to complete a polymeric bridge deck overlay. The closure will begin just south of Gambill and will run almost to Pleasantville. The closure is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 3.

The project is expected to take a week to complete, weather permitting. The official detour is to take SR 54 to SR 59, but INDOT assures residents that local traffic will have access up to the point of closure.
