I-275 bridge deck overlay begins 4/1
Indiana Department of Transportation officials recently met with contractor representatives at Seymour District offices to discuss operations for overlaying bridge decks on twin Interstate 275 structures located 1.34 miles north of U.S. 50 at Lawrenceburg. Work is scheduled to begin on or after April 1.
Dave O’Mara Contractor of North Vernon will hydro-demolish the current driving surface atop 3-span 146-foot-long twin bridges that overpass Action Lane, an access road just north of Belleview Drive, and replace them with 2½-inch-thick concrete deck overlays. This $1,744,288 bridge project includes new concrete bridge rails, approach slabs and guardrail.
Traffic will be restricted to a single lane on both northbound and southbound I-275 bridges. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.
The contract completion date is Oct. 31.
I-275 has a traffic count of 16,110 vehicles per day.
