Rushville Republican

---- — The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to remove and replace a culvert along State Road 244 at Mill Creek near C.R. 750 West, six miles east of Interstate 74 in southwestern Rush County. There will be a 50-day closure of the east-west highway.

State officials met with Beaty Construction, INDOT’s contractor for this $348,860 Greenfield District bridge project, to discuss construction details and determine a timetable for meeting the contract’s completion date of Nov. 1.

INDOT will close S.R. 244 on or after July 8. Beaty Construction will place barricades at C.R. 750W and 725W. Then, a new 4-sided pre-cast concrete drainage structure will be put in place-measuring 18 X 130 feet.
