[INDOT] S.R. 56 Opens At Aurora
Start Date: 10/2/2013Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 10/3/2013End Time: 2:00 PM
Entry Description
AURORA, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation removed barricades from its construction zone along State Road 56 yesterda afternoon (OCT. 1)—opening the entire highway to traffic in advance of Saturday’s Farmers Fair at Aurora. 

S.R. 56 closed in early June for full-depth reconstruction of the roadway.  Phase I—near Lesko Park—had recently reopened to traffic.  Phase II—from Judiciary to George Street—opens to traffic today.  Phase III—from George Street to U.S. 50—will begin construction after the Farmers Fair.

The Paul H. Rohe Company, INDOT’s contractor for the S.R. 56 pavement replacement project, is building a new asphalt roadbed with ADA-complaint sidewalks, modified curbs and gutters, new water main and street/drive approaches. 

U.S. 50 Construction

Rohe is also the state’s contractor for the U.S. 50 repair and repaving project between Dutch Hollow Road and S.R. 350.  Single-lane traffic continues—both eastbound and westbound—on U.S. 50 as workers mill away and patch failed pavement.  Once patched, the highway will be fully milled and resurfaced under traffic.  Flaggers will be present to direct motorists around moving worksites.

Both U.S. 50 and S.R. 56 projects have a contract completion date of November 15.
