State Road 58 closing for culvert replacement

State Road 58 in Jackson County will be closing later this week for up to a month while crews replace a culvert in Kurtz.

According to INDOT, the road will close at the intersection of State 58 and Cleveland Street in Kurtz. While the road is closed, traffic will be routed from State Road 446 to US 50 and then to State Road 135.

The work is expected to take up to 30 days. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.

Force Construction will be the contractor for the project. It is part of a $4.5 million dollar contract awarded to Force.

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