SR 60 Bridge Project To Begin In April

Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with contractor representatives, utility coordinators and design engineers this morning (MARCH 9) at Seymour District offices to review plans for a $1,757,000 bridge replacement project on State Road 60 in Clark County.  

Louisville Paving Company, Indiana’s contractor, is charged with removing and replacing the 3-span S.R. 60 bridge spanning Persimmon Run—located 4.93 miles west of S.R. 111, just west of Broom Hill Road—and installation of a 14 X 9-foot concrete box culvert measuring 72 feet in width at a tributary to Muddy Fork Creek—located 1.5 miles east of Bordon.  Both structures are in Wood Township.  

The Louisville contractor plans to begin work to replace the box culvert in mid- to late-April.  Two-way traffic on S.R. 60 will be shifted to lane and shoulder areas allowing installation to occur one-half at a time.  This operation should be completed within 60 days. 

Replacement of S.R. 60’s 85-foot-long bridge over Persimmon Run is expected to require 120 days for construction. 

S.R. 60 has a traffic count of 10,750 vehicles per day at the culvert and 9,960 at the bridge.
