Work to begin on Decatur County interstate bridge

INDOT says there will lane closures on Interstate 74 in Decatur County this week, as contractors paint a bridge.

According to the agency, crews will close the left lane of the bridge at Ross Road new New Point over Interstate 74 starting on Friday. The restrictions are expected to be in place for about two weeks. On or about September 9th, the work will switch to the right lane and an 11-foot width restriction will be put into place for the duration of the work. It is also expected to take about two weeks.

The work schedule is dependent on the weather. INDOT reminds you to slow down, to drive without distractions and to be alert to worker safety in all construction zones.
