U.S. 50 resurfacing project to begin


Indiana Department of Transportation officials met Monday afternoon with contractor representatives at the Seymour District office to discuss plans for repairing and repaving 8.3 miles of U.S. 50 between U.S. 31 in Seymour and the U.S. 50 North Vernon bypass.

Dave O’Mara, INDOT’s contractor, plans to begin patching operations in early May. The contract’s completion date is Sept. 30.

This $1.9 million project calls for the contractor to mill and replace 1¼ inches of existing asphalt pavement after completing full- and partial-depth patching. Road and drive approaches will be paved. A sinusoidal wave will function along the centerline to warn drivers of cross-lane hazards.

The U.S. 50 resurfacing project will end just west of this summer’s roundabout construction at the U.S. 50/Walnut Street-County Road 400W interchange 2 miles west of North Vernon.

U.S. 50 has a traffic count of 12,980 vehicles per day.
