News release from INDOT:
Lane Restrictions Scheduled on U.S. 24 between Amber and Homestead Roads on Wednesday, August 19
U.S. 24 to be reduced to one lane for small structure replacement at Redding Drive
ALLEN COUNTY (August 24, 2015) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions on U.S. 24, between Amber and Homestead Roads, for a small structure replacement over Zentsmaster Drain at the intersection of U.S. 24 and Redding Drive.
On Wednesday, Aug. 19, weather permitting, contractors will restrict the left lane of U.S. 24, in both directions, to allow for the construction of crossovers. Once crossovers are completed, traffic will be switched to the westbound lanes while the structure is removed. Later this fall, the crossovers will be used to switch traffic to the eastbound lanes, with one lane open in each direction. Once the structure is replaced, the left lane of U.S. 24, in both directions, will be restricted in order to remove the crossovers.
This project is expected to be complete in late November. The contract was awarded to Brooks Construction Company for $1.4 million.
In addition, INDOT has indicated the following side streets will be CLOSED to ALL traffic for the duration of the project:
- Bittersweet Moors Drive (already closed)
- Wintergreen Drive (already closed)
- Redding Drive to the south (to be closed by 8/31)
