Indiana 46 bridge to close


CLAY COUNTY — Repairs and maintenance to a Clay County bridge on Indiana 46 will result in a month-long highway closure and detour beginning Monday.

The bridge over Birch Creek is located about one mile west of Indiana 59.

From Terre Haute, the detour follows Indiana 46 to I-70 east to Indiana 59, then south to the junction with Indiana 46.

A contract of $58,015 was awarded to CLR Inc. with a completion date scheduled for Jan. 31. The current 3-ton weight restriction is expected to be lifted after the repair contract is completed.
