|SR 60 repairs Sellersburg-New Pekin begin|
Indiana Department of Transportation’s $4,422,000 pavement preservation project on State Road 60 between Sellersburg in Clark County and New Pekin in Washington County is tentatively scheduled to get underway this week.
Deployment of construction crews—currently patching S.R. 64—and weather conditions could alter the start date by a day or two.
E & B Paving of Clarksville is the state’s contractor for this 18-mile-long repair and resurfacing project that will impact motorists at New Pekin, Borden, Bennettsville, Hamburg and Sellersburg. Initial work includes a number of full-depth concrete patches that require single lane closures to allow time for curing. There will also be partial-depth concrete and partial-depth asphalt patches.
Once repairs have been made, 1½-inches of S.R. 60’s existing surface will be milled away and new asphalt surface installed. Flaggers will be present to direct motorists around moving worksites.
INDOT’s contract completion date is October 31. Officials anticipate S.R. 60 paving on mainline and at drive and road approaches to be completed by mid- to late-summer.
Traffic count for S.R. 60 is 11,390 vehicles per day.
