FRANKLIN COUNTY, IN — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor GeoStabilization International plans to close a section of State Road 252 in Franklin County on or after Monday, October 18, to begin work on a culvert replacement and slide repair project.
Under the closure, the contractor will replace an 18-inch culvert and stabilize a small section of roadway located just east of Brookville using a soil nail wall.
The closure is expected to be in place for approximately four weeks, weather permitting.
A similar project took place near this location last winter. The new section of soil nail wall will connect to the segment completed last year.
The official detour will follow U.S. 52 to I-74 to Ohio 128 to Ohio 126, and back to State Road 252.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and use extra caution in and near work zones.
All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
