Crews from the Indiana Department of Transportation will be working to rehabilitate the bridge over Lincoln Highway, the Conrail Railroad tracks and 10th Road between 9A Road and 11th Road in Marshall County. That project begins Wednesday, July 5 and will continue through the end of September, assuming the project is kept to schedule.
As a result of this construction work, U.S. 31 in this area will be restricted to one southbound and one northbound lane at the bridge. INDOT crews urge drivers to drive in the area with care, obey posted speed limits and signs, and be alert for construction workers and equipment.
Crews will be sealing, restoring and rehabilitating the concrete surface of the bridge. This is just part of a $1.3 million bridge restoration effort by INDOT that spans Marshall, St. Joseph and Porter Counties.
Meanwhile, a culvert replacement project will close State Road 331 between 9B Road and U.S. 30 near Bourbon in Marshall County on Wednesday, July 5 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The length of time on the project will depend on the weather.
INDOT maintenance crews will dig out a section of ground that runs below the state road to replace a culvert pipe.
The official detour for southbound traffic utilizes State Road 331, U.S. 6, State Road 19, and U.S. 30. Northbound traffic will reverse the route.
