PRINCETON, Ind. – 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 upcoming closure is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 19 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.
