New detour suggested for Seymour U.S. 50 work

INDOT is suggesting a new detour to take you around work on the CSX railroad tracks on U.S. 50 in downtown Seymour.

According to INDOT, CSX Railroad will be closing the highway between Jeffersonville Avenue and East or Circle Streets starting on Tuesday while crews work to replace a railroad crossing. The highway is expected to reopen Thursday afternoon.

The new detour route will take traffic down State Road 11 or Walnut Street to Burkart Boulevard.

The work schedule is dependent on the weather.

INDOT asks that you slow down, drive without distractions and be alert to worker safety in all work zones.
