Weight restriction placed on Indiana 42 bridge over Cataract Lake

Vehicles over 13 tons need to seek alternate route

OWEN COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation is advising motorists that a weight limit restriction of 13-tons has been placed on the Indiana 42 Bridge over Cataract Lake in Owen County.  Typically, cars, mini-vans and pickup trucks are under the 13-ton weight limit.

Based upon a structural analysis review of the bridge, INDOT has determined that vehicles weighing 13 tons are not allowed to travel on the bridge. The conditions of the bridge have warranted placing the weight restriction on the bridge. Signs displaying “Weight Limit 13 Tons” are posted on both sides of the bridge and at the intersections of Indiana 42 with Indiana 59 and Indiana 142. Vehicles over 13 tons are advised to use an alternate route.

A repair contract is being developed and as soon as a timeline is known for construction, it will be released.
