Paving operations continue on U.S. 50 in Seymour


Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. is continuing work on an asphalt resurface project on U.S. 50 (Tipton Street) in Seymour.

Starting on or after Monday, crews will begin 24-hour milling and paving operations between Community Drive and O’Brien Street.

Crews will begin milling the eastbound and westbound driving lanes and approaches early Monday morning, followed by patching and paving. Temporary closures will be possible at some cross-streets as the new surface is placed. Paving will begin in the outer lanes of U.S. 50 and will then transition inside.

Motorists can expect round-the-clock lane closures and restrictions for approximately one week, weather permitting. Message boards will be placed throughout the work zone to alert drivers of lane closures. Traffic backups and delays are expected.

The contract was awarded to Dave O’ Mara for $6.3 million in March. Additional resurfacing is expected to be complete between O’Brien Street and Agrico Lane this fall prior to the Seymour Oktoberfest.

INDOT reminds drivers to consider worker safety by slowing down, using caution and avoiding distractions when traveling through work zones. All work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.
