Second Closure Scheduled for S.R. 64 Project - Beginning Monday, September 24: Work continues on the State Road 64 (S.R. 64) structure replacement project on Princeton’s east side. S.R. 64 will again close to through traffic; however local traffic will have access to the point of closure, 0.40 miles east of the S.R. 65 east junction. The closure is scheduled to begin on Monday, September 24 and will be closed for ten (10) days. Once the structure is complete, the traffic signals will be removed and crews will begin paving the area. Traffic will be controlled by a flag person during this part of construction.
During the closure of S.R 64, the official detour will route traffic on U.S. 41, S.R. 168 and S.R. 57. The overall project completion date for this project is December of this year.
The $1.3 million contract was awarded to Koberstein Contracting, Inc. of Princeton, Indiana, in April of this year. The project includes the installation of a new drainage structure under S.R. 64 between Washington and State Streets and the relocation of sewer and water lines in the affected area.
Exit Ramps to Close at U.S. 41 and S.R. 64 Interchange - Beginning Monday, September 24: Crews will begin milling the loops at the U.S. 41 and S.R. 64 interchange. Crews will close one loop, mill off the existing pavement and clean the roadway. Once complete they will re-open the loop and close another. This process will continue for all four loops of the interchange. It is estimated that two loops will be completed each day. Once all milling and clean up is complete, crews will then begin paving. The same process will be used, closing one loop at a time and completing the paving. It is estimated two loops will be completed each day, with all work at the interchange estimated to be complete by Friday, September 28.
Should inclement weather occur, work activities will be pushed back day by day. During the closure traffic will utilize the other loops of the interchange to reach their desired direction.
This work is a part of a $4.9 million U.S. 41 road resurfacing project that was awarded to E & B Paving of Anderson, Indiana. The project also includes the construction of turn lanes at the U.S. 41 and S.R. 168 intersection and at U.S. 41 and C.R. 350S. The traffic signals at these intersections will be improved to incorporate the new lanes of traffic. Crews have also milled and paved a near 10 mile stretch of U.S.
