Restriction signs go back up for U.S. 50 bypass work | Transportation
NORTH VERNON, IN - Late last fall, lane restriction signs were taken down as traffic “normalized” during the winter construction hiatus. Now, with this spring’s increased construction activity, the Indiana Department of Transportation is having signage put back up.
INDOT urges motorists to drive with caution through work zones and adhere to the lower speeds required by regulatory signage. Those lower speed limits will be enforced.
Year II of Phase I of the $21.9 million Bypass Project at North Vernon is well underway. A new 2-lane 4.5 mile partial bypass connecting existing U.S. Highway 50 near C.R. 400 West with State Road 3 in North Vernon should be in place by the end of this construction season.
Phase I—the western section—is being built under two contracts with two prime contractors. Milestone is charged with building the bypass from C.R. 400W to C.R. 150N, the southern portion. Force Construction is working on the route from C.R. 150N to S.R. 3, the northern portion.
Preliminary plans and environmental documents for Phase II of the U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass Project will be presented at a public hearing to be scheduled in June or July.
