Drainage project near Dudleytown delayed


Replacement of a small drainage structure under State Road 11 at Dudleytown — just north of State Road 250 in Jackson County — has been rescheduled for this weekend.

The project was postponed a week because of a delay in materials’ availabilities.

Temple and Temple, the state’s contractor, plans to remove an existing drainage pipe and replace it with a larger arched pipe measuring 73-by-55 inches, extending 36 feet in length. Excavation and installation operations will require a closure of State Road 11 from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday.

A state highway detour reroutes motorists via State Road 250, Interstate 65 and U.S. 50.

This $137,008 small structure project also requires a single-lane restriction early next week while contracted crews lay asphalt pavement and place riprap. The contract completion date is Aug. 31.
