Jennings County, In. — Indiana Department of Transportation officials have released a preliminary schedule for work to repair 8.3 miles of U.S. Highway 50 between U.S. 31 at Seymour and the U.S. 50 North Vernon bypass.
Dave O’Mara, INDOT’s contractor, plans to begin patching operations in early May. The contract’s completion date is September 30.
This $1.9 million project calls for the contractor to mill and replace 1½ inches of existing asphalt pavement after completing full- and partial-depth patching. Road and drive approaches will be paved. A sinusoidal wave will function along the centerline to warn drivers of cross-lane hazards.
The U.S. 50 resurfacing project will end just west of this summer’s roundabout construction at the U.S. 50/Walnut Street-CR 400 West interchange, two miles west of North Vernon.
U.S. 50 has a traffic count of 12,980 vehicles per day.
