Jackson County highways closing this week for road work

Two highways in Jackson County will be closing this week and another have restrictions as contractor crews work in the area.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, State Road 58 will be closing near Norman and U.S. 31 will be closing north of Uniontown. Both projects are set to start on Tuesday.

State Road 58 will be closing for up to five weeks between North Jackson County Roads 1250 W and 975 W while crews replace a small drainage structure. The detour will take State Road 446 to U.S. 50 and to State Road 135.

U.S. 31 will also close for about five weeks so crews can replace a culvert. That will be about two and a half miles north of Uniontown between East Jackson County Road 50 S and West Base Road. The detour follows State Road 250 to Interstate 65 to U.S. 50.

INDOT also says that traffic on State Road 11 will be restricted between Jonesville and Seymour starting Tuesday, due to bridge work.

According to the agency, crews will be rehabilitating a bridge in Jackson County, about two miles north of Seymour, just north of the blue bridge and a mile south of the interchange with Interstate 65. You can expect temporary traffic signals to be in place while the work is going on.

The work is scheduled to wrap up in July.

The work schedules are dependent on the weather.

INDOT urges you to slow down, to drive without distractions, to use extra caution and to be alert to worker safety in all work zones.
