INDOT to bid final 641 phase

Completion date is in late 2014

TERRE HAUTE — The final construction phase of the 641 bypass is scheduled to let for bids on Dec. 11, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

INDOT is scheduled to have all work needed for final bid contracts completed by Oct. 2, according to INDOT’s construction list for Major Moves projects. The final bypass construction section is called Phase 4.

The state is currently working “with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and [Indiana Department of Environmental Management] to acquire waterway permits before the Phase 4 contract is scheduled to let,” said INDOT spokeswoman Debbie Calder.

“The permits allow INDOT contractors to enter waterways under federal jurisdiction to build the State Road 641 bypass,” Calder said.

Acquisition of waterway permits has delayed the start of Phase 3, which was awarded to Walsh Construction Co. of Crown Point for $25,298,936. That phase begins northeast of Feree Road to Moyer Road. Phase 4 is from Moyer Road to the I-70 interchange.

“Once the permits are approved, which is expected this summer, and construction resumes, INDOT will be able to confirm a completion date,” Calder said.

The $150 million bypass had been slated for completion at the end of 2014.

“Utility coordination is on-going,” Calder said of the final phases, “however utility relocations could lengthen construction time.”

Waterway mitigation permits for the project will have a 30-day public comment period before final approval is given. Calder said INDOT does not yet have a time when that public notice will begin.

INDOT’s 18-month construction letting lists now includes work for the final phase.

That work includes new road construction on the bypass from just south of Moyer Road to Margaret Avenue. Also, steel bridge replacements on Interstate 70 westbound and eastbound lanes over the bypass.

In addition, a local service road and bridges over a tributary of the Little Honey Creek.

Work will also include new precast three-sided culvert bridge on Moyer Road over the Little Honey Creek and a steel bridge on Moyer Road over the 641 bypass.
