SR 38 Pavement Project in New Castle
Milestone Contractors closed State Road 38 in March 2017 to begin construction on a $5.3 million pavement replacement and rehabilitation project in New Castle between State Road 3 (Memorial Drive) and 31st Street.
Road closures will be phased to maximize local access only during construction and complete the project this year. A signed detour will direct through highway traffic south to I-70 via State Road 1 and State Road 109.
