(Ripley County, IN) – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Pacific Painting Company plans to begin work next week on the U.S. 421 bridge over Cedar Creek near Versailles.

On or after Monday, August 14, U.S. 421 will close for approximately two weeks just north of U.S. 50 as crews perform a bridge deck overlay.

The bridge is located between U.S. 50 and Baseline Road and is expected to reopen by the end of August, weather permitting.

During the closure, traffic will be routed along the official detour, which follows State Road 350, State Road 129, and U.S. 50.

INDOT reminds motorists to consider worker safety by slowing down, using caution, and driving distraction-free in and near construction zones.

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