‘Slide’ closes SR 54 east of Ridgeport


GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A portion of State Road 54 is closed for precautionary measures following what Indiana Department of Transportation is calling a “slide.”  

A detour is in place for the portion of the road just east of Ridgeport in Greene County, near mile marker 46. 

According to an INDOT communications director Jason Tiller, the department was patching the roadway when they discovered a larger issue.

The detour will be in effect until further notice. 

Jason Tiller, the communications director of Southwest Indiana INDOT, said “it is very precautionary. We do have the road stabilized to prevent further damage, we just want to keep traffic off of it for now. So we are working on a solution. We are working to get the project for the slide correction accelerated.”
