U.S. 50 project begins this week
The Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor plans to begin making pavement repairs this week on U.S. 50 between U.S. 31 and the roundabout construction site at the west end of the North Vernon bypass.
Dave O’Mara of North Vernon, the state’s contractor for this $1.9 million rehabilitation project, will make full- and partial-depth asphalt patches — weather permitting — in advance of milling and surface-paving operations along the 8.3-mile section of east-west roadway.
Flaggers will be onsite to direct motorists around individual worksites. Work is slated to begin today or Tuesday.
