[INDOT] Periodic Closures of US 24 Bridge in Monticello
Start Date: 10/17/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 10/17/2013
Entry Description

MONTICELLO, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces periodic 20-30 minute complete closures of the U.S. 24 bridge in Monticello over the Tippecanoe River throughout the day on Monday, October 21st and Tuesday October 22nd, and again on Monday, October 28th and Tuesday, October 29th. The closures are necessary to ensure driver safety as massive beams are set for the new U.S. 24 bridge.

 

On each of the designated days, crews will stop traffic on the U.S. 24 bridge for around 20-30 minutes as they use a crane to set one of the 55 ton concrete beams into place. Once a beam is secured, traffic will be released while crews prepare the next beam. This process will continue until all bridge beams are set in place over the course of four days. Please note: All planned work is weather permitting.

 

To avoid delays, drivers are encouraged to avoid the U.S. 24 bridge entirely during each day of beam settings.

 

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone. For the latest road closures and news from INDOT, like us at www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest and follow us at www.Twitter.com/INDOTNorthwest.
