Bridge Work Planned on U.S. 50 in Ripley County

(Ripley County, IN) –  Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Sunesis Construction Company plans to reduce U.S. 50 to one lane over Otter Creek in Ripley County on or after Monday, April 15 to begin a bridge rehabilitation project.

Work will take place just east of Nebraska and is expected to be complete by mid-November, weather permitting.

Temporary traffic signals will be used while work is in progress.

Crews will place signage in the area prior to the start of construction.

This project is part of a $2.2 million contract awarded to Sunesis Construction in February 2024.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and avoid distractions when traveling near work zones.

All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
