Construction workers plan a break for NMLRA event

Friendship, In. — A construction hiatus to accommodate State Road 62 traffic for the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association’s Spring Shoot at Friendship is in effect in Dearborn County through June 18.  On June 19, the Indiana Department of Transportation will re-close S.R. 62 south of Dillsboro.  This will allow contracted crews to continue slide correction operations.

Motorists will detour around the geohazard site via S.R. 129 and U.S. 50.

Beaty Construction is INDOT’s contractor for this $5 million slide correction project which includes a second slide site in Ripley County.
