Road work to cause delays on Bartholomew County routes

Two major Bartholomew County roads will be closing this week for roadwork.

According to the County Highway Department, rural 25th Street will be closing Tuesday from near the Columbus city limits near Booher Addition east to the junction with State Road 9 and State Road 46. If possible, the road will have one lane open, and you can expect very long delays with flagmen on scene. That work will be going on through at least Wednesday.

Also on Tuesday, contractors will be paving the full width of County Road 800S from County Road 250W to the dead end.

You should avoid these areas if you can. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.
