Decatur County bridge work set for April start

Greensburg, In. — Officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation say work on a single-span bridge on State Road 3 on Decatur County will begin in April.

Franklin-based Duncan Robertson Inc. will complete the $820,140 project that will replace the aging superstructure of a concrete girder bridge over Muddy Fork Sand Creek—originally built in 1929—with a 34-foot-long concrete slab accommodating 33 feet of clear roadway side-to-side. Work is slated to begin on or after April 1, 2019.

Operations will concentrate on one-half of the structure at a time. This will facilitate continuous single-lane traffic flow controlled by temporary signals at either end of the worksite.  Access to driveways will be maintained at all times.

The State Road 3 bridge is located one mile north of Interstate 74, 0.4 miles south of North Decatur High School.
