INDOT to install culvert at Ind. 60

The Indiana Department of Transportation will correct an ongoing drainage concern along Ind. 60 in Silver Creek Township — between Hamburg and Bennettsville — by replacing a cross pipe with a small concrete culvert this summer.

INDOT officials met with its contractor and several utility company representatives Friday, May 9, at the Seymour District offices to discuss installation of a small three-sided box structure on Ind. at a location 0.18 miles northwest of St. Joe Road.

A tentative timetable calls for utility services to be relocated beginning the first week of June. Once the right of way has been cleared, Yardberry Landscape Co., the state’s contractor, will remove the existing cross pipe and install a 12-foot by six-foot prestressed concrete culvert with wing walls. The drainage structure measures 72 feet in length.

Installation will be accomplished one half at a time, allowing two-way traffic to be maintained on 10-foot lanes as construction operations move from one side of Ind. 60 to the other. Wide-load restrictions will be in effect for up to 60 days.
