Additional traffic changes scheduled this week along U.S. 50 in Seymour


Staff Reports

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Milestone Contractors LP plans to implement additional traffic restrictions along U.S. 50 in Seymour this week.

Starting Thursday morning, Cloverleaf Drive is scheduled to close at U.S. 50. The closure will allow for removal of old pavement and placement of new full-depth asphalt. Cloverleaf Drive is expected to reopen Saturday evening, weather permitting.

Also Thursday, U.S. 50 traffic will be moved to the inside lanes just west of U.S. 31 as crews begin constructing a traffic island in the northwest corner of the intersection. This configuration is expected to remain in place for approximately two weeks.

In addition, the second phase of box culvert installation is scheduled to take place this weekend. Westbound U.S. 50 will again be reduced to one lane between Holiday Square Drive and Agrico Lane starting Friday morning. Two eastbound lanes will remain open but will be shifted slightly to the south.

As in Phase 1, westbound lanes will merge to a single lane near Azul Tequila and also split so the left turn lane can be utilized at Myers Lane. To turn left, drivers should use the left lane, and they should use the right lane to continue west on U.S. 50. Two thru lanes will become available near Walmart (Agrico Lane).

Over the next few weeks, Milestone will begin making preparations for final paving. Following pavement replacement between El Nopal and Agrico Lane, the surface will be paved and pavement markings will be placed throughout project limits. This work is scheduled to be completed under lane closures by the end of October.
