Two highways closing in Jackson County next week

Two highways in Jackson County will be closing next week as contractor crews work in the area.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, State Road 58 will be closing near Norman and U.S. 31 will be closing north of Uniontown. Both projects are set to start on Tuesday.

State Road 58 will be closing for up to five weeks between North Jackson County Roads 1250 W and 975 W while crews replace a small drainage structure. The detour will take State Road 446 to U.S. 50 and to State Road 135.

U.S. 31 will also close for about five weeks so crews can replace a culvert. That will be about two and a half miles north of Uniontown between East Jackson County Road 50 S and West Base Road. The detour follows State Road 250 to Interstate 65 to U.S. 50.

The work schedules are dependent on the weather.

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