Entry Description

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 17, 2014

 

Public Hearing for State Road 46 Bridge Project

Hearing begins at 5:30 at the Clay County Perry Township Volunteer Fire Department

 

CLAY COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will hold a public hearing for the proposed project on the State Road 46 (S.R. 46) Bridge over Birch Creek.  The hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the doors will open at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, January 23 at the Clay County Perry Township Volunteer Fire Department.  The Fire Department is located at 500 South Center Street, Cory, Indiana. 

 

The public hearing will offer all interested persons and opportunity to comment on the current design plans for the proposed S.R. 46 bridge replacement over Birch Creek, located 0.92 mile west of State Road 59 (S.R. 59).

 

This is a steel Warren pony truss bridge with concrete abutments, a steel superstructure, and a concrete deck and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (National Register) under Criterion C for its engineering significance.  As part of the Indiana Historic Bridge Inventory project, the bridge was determined to be Non-Select.  The bridge has been marketed for re-use for over six months and information about the bridge can be found on the following INDOT Historic Bridge Marketing website:  http://www.in.gov/indot/2532.htm.  The public hearing will also be the last opportunity for a responsible party to step forward and provide the necessary sureties to obtain ownership of the bridge. 

 

Construction of the proposed project will replace the existing structure with a new 112-foot long, three span, reinforced concrete slab bridge on the existing alignment.  The bridge would have a 33-foot “outside to outside” width, with two 12-foot through lanes and 3-foot usable shoulders.  Construction of the project will require approximately 0.80 acres of new permanent right-of-way.

 

Traffic is proposed to be detoured onto the official state routes using portions of S.R. 59 and I-70 during the construction period; however, local routes may be used by local traffic.  The tentative timetable for construction will be discussed during the formal presentation.

 

Public statements for the record will be taken after the formal presentation.  Individuals interested in participating in the public statement session may sign the speaker’s schedule prior to the presentation. 

 

All comments collected before, during and for a period of two weeks after the hearing will be evaluated and addressed as part of the official public hearings transcript.  If anyone would like to comment but cannot attend the public hearing, they may e-mail their comments to Mary Wright at mwright@indot.in.gov .
