US 31 & SR 135 Lanes Closed For Pavement Repairs April 24

JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation will close lanes on U.S. Highway 31 between County Line Road and Stop 18 AND lanes on State Road 135 between Bargersville and Stones Crossing for pavement repairs on Monday (APRIL 24).

One-lane-at-a-time will close on U.S. 31 during daylight hours for full-depth concrete patching.

S.R. 135 will have a single lane closed at work sites during daylight hours while crews saw-cut pavement sections to be removed for full-depth concrete patching. Flaggers will direct motorists around crews and equipment during this moving operation.

No work is planned next week for the north section of S.R. 135 under contract between Curry Road and County Line Road.

E & B Paving is the state’s contractor for this $6.1 million pavement preservation project in Johnson County on U.S. 31 and S.R. 135. Once asphalt and concrete repairs have been made, operations will focus on milling and resurfacing the north-south highways. INDOT’s project also calls for installation of 19 ADA-compliant curb ramps.

Looking ahead, tentative schedules call for nighttime milling and asphalt patching on U.S. 31 beginning Sunday night, April 30. Crews will start placing concrete patches along the south segment of S.R. 135 during daytime hours on Monday morning, May 1. Flaggers will direct traffic around worksites. This phase of the project will continue for approximately two weeks.

CR 300N in Johnson County at I-65 Closes Monday, April 10th

Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor plans on making minor repairs and installing a new thin polymeric bridge deck overlay—beginning Monday (APRIL 10)—at the C.R. 300 North structure that overpasses Interstate 65.  This bridge on C.R. 300N—also known as Earlywood Drive—is located 2.67 miles north of the State Road 44/Franklin exit in Johnson County.

Beginning Monday morning at 9 a.m., the C.R. 300N structure will be closed to ALL traffic.  INDOT officials anticipate work to remove and replace the bridge’s existing driving surface will continue for up to ten days. Motorists are advised to follow detour signage to circumvent the closure.

Dave O’Mara of North Vernon is the state’s contractor for this $916,500 bridge preservation project which includes five bridges requiring four full closures.  Other Johnson County bridges spanning I-65 are:

  • CR 100 North–0.92 miles north of S.R. 44 tentatively scheduled to close for two weeks beginning April 20
  • CR 250 South–3.13 miles south of S.R. 44 tentatively scheduled to close for two weeks May 1
  • Greensburg Road–2.15 miles south of S.R. 44 tentatively scheduled to close from May 22 to July 25

The S.R. 44 bridge at Sugar Creek in nearby Shelby County will be impacted for approximately one month —beginning April 17—while crews make repairs and install the new deck overlay.  Temporary signals at either end of the S.R. 44 3-span structure will allow alternating single-lane traffic flow during refurbishing operations.  The bridge is located 3.63 miles east of I-65.

The state’s project calls for overlaying each of the five bridges with a 3/8-inch polymeric surface designed to seal the structures from moisture intrusion and harmful UV rays.  Flint chips mix with the epoxy polymer to create long-lasting surface friction that maximizes stopping capabilities and vehicular maneuverability.
