TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) says Newman Road will close at State Road 26 on Thursday.
The closure is all part of the $45.6-million Major Moves project locating U.S. 231.
Crews will be installing pipe at the location, and the plan is to have the roadway open again by late in the day Friday.
The U.S. 231 bypass will begin just north of the Wabash River and continue east of the Purdue University Airport, then northwest to State Road 26 near its intersection with Newman Road.
It will connect with U.S. 52 just west of McCormick Road north of West Lafayette.
Construction began in spring of 2011, and the 5.3 miles of U.S. 231 is scheduled to open by the end of September in 2013.
