Work continues on State Road 250 this week

Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. is continuing work this week on a $2.9 million bridge and box culvert replacement project on State Road 250 in Jackson County.

Crews are working in two locations between State Road 39 and U.S. 31 and will begin work at a third location on or after Monday.

A 30-day closure just began between County Road 400E and County Road 475E approximately 3 miles east of State Road 39 for a box culvert replacement at Pond Creek.

State Road 250 remains closed just under 2 miles east of State Road 11 at Vernon Fork Muscatatuck Overflow west of the railroad also for a box culvert replacement.

The same contractor will begin work Monday to replace the State Road 250 bridge over Rider Ditch. The bridge is located just west of the box culvert at Vernon Fork Muscatatuck Overflow. This section of State Road 250 will remain closed through late August.

Additional structures on the contract include box culvert replacement 2.25 miles east of State Road 39 (30-day closure) and bridge replacement over Vernon Fork Muscatatuck River 1.86 miles west of U.S. 31 (120-day closure).

The official detour for all State Road 250 closures follows U.S. 31 to State Road 256 to State Road 39.

The Indiana Department of Transportation asks motorists to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones.

All work is weather dependent.
