Closure Planned on SR 3 in Decatur and Jennings Counties

(Decatur/Jennings Counties, IN) – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractors is scheduled to close State Road 3 between U.S. 50 and Westport beginning on or after Tuesday, April 9, to complete an asphalt resurface project in Decatur and Jennings counties.

The closure will take place between County Road 350 North in Jennings County and South Main Street in Westport and is expected to be complete by early November, weather permitting.

Crews will begin to place signage in the area prior to the start of construction. During the closure, motorists should use the official detour route which follows U.S. 50 to U.S. 421 to State Road 46.

Access will initially be maintained for local traffic between U.S. 50 and C.R. 500 N in Jennings County, until later in the project. All through traffic should utilize the official detour route throughout the entirety of the project. Access will be maintained for local residents and farmers.

This project is part of a $9.3 million contract awarded to Dave O’Mara in August 2023.

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.
