PRINCETON, Ind. – Work will be gearing up soon on the State Road 64 (S.R. 64) structure replacement project on the city’s east side. Beginning Monday, June 18, S.R. 64 will close to through traffic; however local traffic will have access to the point of closure, 0.40 miles east of the S.R. 65 east junction.
The $1.3 million contract was awarded to Koberstein Contracting, Inc. of Princeton, Indiana, in April of this year. The project includes the installation of a new drainage structure under S.R. 64 between Washington and State Streets and relocation of sewer and water lines in the affected area.
The first closure is scheduled for Monday, June 18 and will be closed for five (5) days. During the closure crews will also install stop lights on each end of the work zone. When the roadway is re-opened to traffic, it will be one 12-foot lane and the stop lights will control traffic through the area. The second closure is currently scheduled for Thursday, August 16 and will be closed for nine (9) days. The signal will continue to be utilized as crews finish the installation of the drainage structure. Once the structure is complete, the signals will be removed and crews will pave the area. Traffic will be controlled by a flag person during this part of construction.
During the closure of S.R 64, the official detour will route traffic on U.S. 41, S.R. 168 and S.R. 57. The overall project completion date for this project is December of this year.
