S.R. 156 Bridge Repairs At North Landing
Start Date: 1/28/2014Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 1/29/2014End Time: 1:00 PM
Entry Description

RISING SUN, INDIANA—The Indiana Department of Transportation is fitting several large steel plates for installation atop the State Road 156 bridge deck at the structure crossing Grants Creek in southeast Ohio County.  Once installed, the S.R. 156 bridge—located at North Landing—will reopen to traffic. 

It has been closed since January 12 when a piece of concrete surface gave way.

INDOT is currently in the process of drilling holes in inch-thick steel plates through which the two 8 X 12-foot metal sheets can be bolted to the existing bridge deck.  A special treatment is being applied to driving surfaces on the plates to bolster traction.    

Thursday—weather permitting—the two plates will be taken to the bridge site and installed.  Crews hope to have the Grants Creek structure open to the motoring public before the end of the day Friday.

INDOT officials caution motorists to drive slowly when crossing the bridge.  Installing of the steel  plates will result in a rougher driving surface.

These repairs at the S.R. 156 bridge are a temporary “fix”.  They are being made in anticipation of scheduled construction that will rebuild the bridge’s superstructure.
