Indiana Department of Transportation crews from Tell City, Birdseye, and Dale this week will close and chip seal about 8 miles of State Road 62 and State Road 245 in Spencer County.

INDOT says weather permitting State Road 62 will close beginning tomorrow from State Road 162 to State Road 545. Maintenance crews anticipate closing State Road 245 next Monday, June 6th after State Road 62 reopens for work between State Road 62 and Santa Claus.

Crews plan to apply a final, black layer known as a “fog seal” and pavement markings to both road sections beginning next Tuesday, June 7th.

During chip and seal operations, the roads will be closed to through traffic; however, local traffic will have access to their homes. All dates are dependent upon weather conditions.

Road closures will be in effect around the clock during the course of the project. INDOT asks that motorists slow down in the work zone and stay alert near crews.
