U.S. 52 to close near Franklin-Dearborn County line

New Trenton, IN— INDOT contractors plans to close U.S. 52 east of S.R. 1, near the Franklin-Dearborn County line on or after Monday, April 6, to begin work on a $637,000 small structure replacement project.

The road will close separately at two locations near New Trenton for approximately 45 days. The first structure is located 4.77 miles east of S.R. 1 and the second is 6.48 miles east of S.R. 1. The official state detour for the closures will follow I-74 to S.R. 1 at St. Leon. Both locations will not close at the same time. 

The contract was awarded in August 2019 and is expected to be complete by the end of July. Motorists should slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent
