The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that State Road 56 near Petersburg will be closed for a bridge replacement beginning on or around July 17.
Depending upon weather conditions, crews with Blankenberger Brothers Inc. will close the bridge spanning the Harbin Creek about two miles west of S.R. 65. The road will be completely closed near the bridge. Local traffic will have access up to the point of closure. Work is expected to last until mid-August depending upon weather conditions.
The closure will be in effect around the clock. The official detour for this closure uses U.S. 41, S.R. 64 and S.R. 65. INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
