Rescheduled State Road 11 work to start next week

State Road 11 will be closing south of Seymour starting next week while a small drainage structure is replaced under the roadway.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, contractors have been working on a resurfacing project on the highway between U.S. 50 and State Road 250 since June. That work will include the replacement of the structure between County Road 300N and the Burkhart Boulevard bypass at Grassy Fork Creek.

The work will start Monday and State Road 11 should be closed for about 20 days. The work schedule is dependent on the weather. The drainage structure replacement was originally scheduled for earlier in July but it was delayed.

Traffic will be detoured to State Road 250 to Interstate 65 to U.S. 50. Local traffic will still have access up to the point where it is closed.

Milestone Contractors was awarded the $2.6 million resurfacing project.
