U.S. 52 resurfacing completed

RUSHVILLE — U.S. Highway 52 is being reopened to traffic this afternoon, Friday, Nov. 30, in Rush and Franklin Counties after the Indiana Department of Transportation expedited an ambitious resurfacing project for completion in less than a month. The 11-mile section of U.S. 52 between State Road 3 at Rushville and S.R. 244 at Andersonville has been milled and repaved with a new asphalt surface.

Several pavement-exception locations along the route remain to be paved next year when replacement culverts are installed at those sites.

Milestone-the state’s contractor for this $1,289,726 district resurfacing project-worked seven days a week during daylight hours to satisfy the aggressive construction schedule.

Barricades are being removed later this afternoon. Meanwhile, some “finish” work may continue into next week-with flaggers directing motorists around crews.
