Entry Description
The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing on Thursday, January 23, 2014, at 5:30pm at the Clay County Perry Township Volunteer Fire Department, 500 South Center Street, Cory, Indiana 47846.

The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on current design plans for the proposed SR 46 bridge replacement over Birch Creek, 0.9 mile west of SR 59, located in Clay County.

Bridge No. 046-11-01313A, a steel Warren pony truss bridge with concrete abutments, a steel superstructure, and a concrete deck, is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (National Register) under Criterion C for its engineering significance. As part of the Indiana Historic Bridge Inventory project, the bridge was determined to be Non-Select. The bridge has been marketed for re-use for over six months and information about the bridge can be found on the following INDOT Historic Bridge Marketing website: This public hearing will be the last opportunity for a responsible party to step forward and provide the necessary sureties to obtain ownership of the bridge. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. The project will result in an “adverse effect” under Section 106 due to the subject bridge’s replacement. Based on the replacement of the National Register eligible bridge, the Federal Highway Administration has issued an “adverse effect” finding for the project. In accordance with the NHPA, the views of the public are being sought regarding the effect of the proposed project on the historic elements as per 36 CFR 800.2(d), 800.3(e) and 800.6(a)(4). Pursuant to 36 CFR 800.6(a) (4), the documentation of “adverse effect” specified in 36 CFR 800.11 (e) is available for viewing along with the environmental document and preliminary design plans for the project at the locations below:

1. Hearings Examiner, Room N642, Indiana Government Center North, 100 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204 2216, Phone # (317) 234 0796
2. Planning & Programming Department, Indiana Department of Transportation Crawfordsville District office, 41 West 300 North, Crawfordsville, Indiana 47933
Phone # (888) 924-6368
3. Brazil Public Library, 204 North Walnut Street, Indiana 47834 Phone # (812) 448-1981

The proposed project involves replacing the existing structure with a new 112-foot long, three span, reinforced concrete slab bridge on the existing alignment. The bridge would have a 33-foot “outside to outside” width, with two 12-foot through lanes and 3-foot usable shoulders. Road work would include necessary approach work and to stabilize the slopes. Guardrail would be installed where appropriate. Construction of the project will require approximately 0.8 acre of new permanent right-of-way. No displacement of residents or businesses will be involved with this project. Traffic is proposed to be detoured onto the official state routes using portions of SR 59, and I-70 during the construction period; however, local routes may be used by local traffic.

The tentative timetables for right of way acqui¬sition and construction will be discussed during the formal presentation. Public statements for the record will be taken after the presentation. All comments collected before, during and for a period of two (2) weeks after the hearing will be evaluated and addressed before final design. The preliminary plans will be available for anyone interested in talking to the engineers about the project before and after the formal presentation. Conversations will not be part of the official record.

In the event of inclement winter weather and hazardous road conditions, this meeting would be rescheduled for Saturday, January 25, 2014 at the same location as listed above but rather a new starting time of 1:00pm if hazardous winter weather conditions arise. Should inclement weather prevail, please call (317) 232-6601 or e-mail  to find out whether the meeting will be held or rescheduled.
