ROAD CONSTRUCTION UPDATES IN BROWN COUNTY

ROAD CONSTRUCTION NOTICE ON STATE ROAD 46 BEGINNING APRIL 2018

BROWN COUNTY — The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to restrict traffic on Ind. 46 on April 5 to a single lane at its bridge over the north fork of Salt Creek, located 0.25 miles west of Ind. 135 in Nashville. Temporary signals will be placed Monday at either end of the three-span, 153-foot-long structure to regulate one-direction-at-a-time traffic.

The Ind. 46 Salt Creek structure is part of a $1,153,832 three-bridge Brown County rehabilitation project. Ragle Inc. is the state’s contractor. Its Newburgh-based crews are charged with installing a latex modified concrete deck overlay to protect the Salt Creek bridge and renew its driving surface.

The department of transportation will also close the westbound shoulder of Ind. 46 at Gnaw Bone, where a metal arched pipe culvert near Brown Hill Road will be repaired and the pavement will be patched. Later, the eastbound shoulder as well as Old Ind. 46 will close for Phase II repairs. Two-way traffic will be maintained at the Ind. 46 site located two miles east of Ind. 135 at Nashville.

After Memorial Day, the contractor will remove and replace an existing single-span slab-top structure adjacent to Ind. 46 at Bond Cemetery Road/Shipley Hollow Road. A new 14-by-7-foot concrete box culvert measuring 53 feet in width will be installed at the site located just east of Ind. 446. Temporary signals will regulate single lane one-direction-at-a-time traffic.

 

ROAD CONSTRUCTION NOTICE ON YELLOWWOOD ROAD BEGINNING MAY 2018 THROUGH AUGUST 2018

BROWN COUNTY, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation will close a half-mile section of Yellowwood Road next Monday (MAY 7) for up to 14 days between State Road 46 and a terminus within the Yellowwood State Forest. Residents who live on Somerset Lake Road will be routed around construction operations by flaggers—when possible—or directed in/out of the area via Jackson Creek Road.

Milestone, INDOT’s contractor for this $4,363,000 Phase II road rehabilitation project, plans to pulverize the existing roadbed and utilize an environmentally friendly process termed “Full Depth Pavement Reclamation (FDR) to rebuild the south access to this state forest. Materials from the existing road will be mixed with cement and water, then compacted to form a stable, lasting base. Two 1½-inch lifts of asphalt will top the FDR treatment.

A Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) report states that 80 percent of asphalt pavements are recycled—putting asphalt at the top of the list for most recycled materials.

Beginning in June, Milestone will rebuild nearly three miles of existing gravel road in the northern part of the forest between the main parking lot and boat ramp at Yellowwood Lake and Lanam Ridge Road. Operations there—requiring a 120-day closure—will strengthen Yellowwood Lake Road /Duncan Road Work includes installation of new culverts and drainage pipes—and stabilizing the bank of an adjacent creek.

Last year, roads south of Yellowwood Lake’s parking lot—including a 300-foot bridge on Yellowwood Road at Salt Creek—were constructed under a separate $4,581,000 contract.

Yellowwood Forest is a 23,200-acre state recreational site located east of Nashville. It offers hiking, primitive camping and lake activities to Brown County visitors. INDOT’s road/bridge projects improve access while responding to flooding and mobility issues.
