SR 58 bridge south of Waymansville to close next week

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that State Road 58 will close on or after Monday, Sept. 16, for approximately 30 days over South Fork White Creek, south of Waymansville, for scour protection work. The bridge is located approximately 9.5 miles west of I-65, between County Road 1100 S. and County Road 950 S. in Bartholomew County.

The official detour for the closure is State Road 135 to U.S. 50 to State Road 11 to I-65.

INDOT says this $360,000 project and is part of a larger bridge contract involving multiple bridges on I-65, U.S. 31 and State Road 58.

Scour protection treatments help maintain the structural integrity of bridges and eliminates risks associated with erosion at or near bridge structures.

The work is dependent on the weather.
