Road maintenance begins on Ind. 129
Crews began maintenance work on Ind. 129 in Switzerland County on Tuesday, April 23. Mastic sealant will be applied to transverse cracks in the asphalt, in addition to minor surface milling to improve road smoothness and decrease noise. Work will continue for three to four weeks from Ind. 250 at Pleasant to Ind. 56 at Vevay, weather permitting.
Motorists should expect lane closures along Ind. 129, with flaggers present to maintain traffic. The current work being completed is a temporary solution to improve road quality in preparation for structural pavement repairs that are needed on Ind. 129. After preliminary engineering work, the original plan to place a thin layer of asphalt was revised to include a structural overlay of pavement, resulting in a delay in contract letting until summer 2020.
