Lane Restrictions Planned for S.R. 1 Bridge Over Deptmer Ditch in Allen County on Monday, April 18
Bridge will be reduced to single lane traffic in alternating directions controlled by temporary signal

(April 13, 2016) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that traffic will be restricted to one 16-foot lane on S.R. 1 over Deptmer Ditch on Monday, April 18, weather permitting. A bridge deck rehabilitation will take place between Yoder and Hamilton roads near the community of Yoder.

Motorists can expect to see heavy equipment placing a temporary barrier wall, as well as a temporary traffic signal to alternate vehicles over the single-lane bridge. A 45 mph speed limit will be strictly enforced. INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through an active construction zone.

Restrictions on the S.R. 1 bridge over Deptmer Ditch will remain through late August.

The bridge is being rehabilitated in conjunction with the S.R. 9 bridge over Stony Creek in Whitley County. The combined contract was awarded to R.L. McCoy for $1.68 million.
