VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Traffic on U.S. 150 will be reduced to one lane in each direction as construction on a multi-use path will begin, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.
U.S. 150 will collapse to one lane between Schley Place, just west of the Wabash River, and Sumner Ave. in West Terre Haute. The lane closure is scheduled to begin on Wednesday. Concrete barrier walls will be placed between traffic and the work area for delivery of materials for the multi-use path.
The multi-use path will be constructed of prefabricated, precast concrete boardwalks on a steel frame, resting on concrete pilings on the south side of 150 behind an existing guardrail. It will offer 10 feet of clear space for walking and/or biking over the Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife area. The road blockage is expected to conclude around the end of November, and construction is scheduled to be completed in the fall of next year.
Utility relocation is continuing and should be wrapping up within the next few weeks.
