Part of State Road 11 to temporarily close Friday

The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced a temporary closure planned for Friday on State Road 11 south of Seymour.

The road is expected to close to thru traffic from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. between Steven’s Drive and Farmington Road (County Road 300N) for final paving of the new roundabout at the Burkhart Boulevard extension. Access to businesses and residences in the area will be maintained.

Once paving is complete, traffic will be able to travel north and south through the roundabout; however, movements to Burkhart Boulevard will remain closed to traffic.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and consider worker safety when traveling in and near active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.

The Burkhart Boulevard extension is a local project through the city of Seymour.
