INDOT says U.S. 52 will be resurfaced

$1.3 million contract awarded today

RUSHVILLE — The Indiana Department of Transportation awarded an asphalt paving contract for U.S. Highway 52—from Rushville to Andersonville in Rush and Franklin Counties—to Milestone Contractors LP.  The Columbus-Indiana company’s $1,289,726 bid was the lowest of three submitted.

INDOT made the contract award announcement this afternoon, Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Earlier the 11-mile section of U.S. 52 was chip sealed as a pavement preservation measure.  But results of that treatment were inadequate and require remediation.  Two weeks ago, INDOT officials pulled back from plans for a subsequent chip seal application in favor of resurfacing the roadway.  Since that time, an all-out effort has been made to expedite the planning and approval process required to implement such a project.

Today’s announcement was the successful culmination of that multi-faceted effort.

A preconstruction meeting between INDOT and the contractor has been scheduled for Friday afternoon.  A construction timetable should be known at that time.  INDOT is hopeful that the U.S. 52 resurfacing project can be completed before the end of this year’s construction season.  Weather will be a determining factor.
