More Repairs Force Crews To Delay U.S. 52 Reopening

April 24, 2014

The reopening of U.S. 52 east of Brookville has been pushed back past May 1, an Indiana Department of Transportation official said. The road is now slated to open during the second week of May.

Highway crews have completed the soil nailing process on the slide but additional repair work is required.

“Wish we would have gotten open a little faster but it needs a little more extensive repair,” said INDOT spokesperson Harry Maginity said.

“I was thinking it might open before that, but because of the type of repairs we have to do there our technical service people said the second week of May it would be open.”

The soil nail process includes 20-foot shafts installed into the bank in a pattern. Maginity added the installation comes with a working guarantee to hold the slide for a number of years.

The slide repairs have been ongoing since April 2, as a result of the harsh winter.
