VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. — The Indiana Department of Transportation Thursday announced the start date to paint the Henry Dana Washburn Memorial Bridge (State Road 163) over the Wabash River has been delayed to ensure access to the necessary streets and highways are available during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Once a new start date is determined it will be announced to the public.

This project was awarded to Force Construction Co., Inc. for $5.3 million. 

The S.R. 163 Bridge deck was replaced and widened last year with painting to occur this year. This project also included a bridge replacement on S.R. 71 over the Little Vermillion River that was completed in 2018.
