State Road 250 to close for bridge replacement

State Road 250 in southern Jackson County will be closing for about four months, starting next week, as crews work to replace a bridge over the Vernon Fork of the Muscatatuck River.

INDOT says that Dave O’Mara Contractors have the $1.2 million dollar contract to replace the bridge, which is west of U.S. 31 in Uniontown. The official detour will follow U.S. 31 to U.S. 50 and then to State Road 11.

The work is scheduled to start on Monday, June 21st and to last for 120 days. The schedule is dependent on the weather.

INDOT reminds you to slow down, to use extra caution and to drive without distractions in all work zones.
