State Road 135 bridge to close for six months

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Duncan Robertson Inc. will close the State Road 135 bridge over Wayman Ditch on or after April 20, weather permitting, for a total bridge replacement project.

The bridge is located just north of U.S. 50 in Jackson County.

State Road 135 is scheduled to close for 180 days through mid-October. The official detour will follow U.S. 50 to State Road 446 to State Road 58.

The $1.8 million contract was awarded in November 2019 and is expected to be complete by Oct. 31.

All work is weather dependent.
