LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Westbound U.S. 52 traffic spanning between Lafayette and the Wabash River Bridge is about to get tougher to navigate.
According to the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), westbound traffic on U.S. 52 between Duncan Road to the Wabash River Bridge will be restricted to one lane on or after Thursday.
Crews will be constructing the concrete bridge approach.
INDOT says the left, passing lane will be closed for almost 3 weeks, and the restriction will then switch to the right lane for roughly another 3 weeks. The project is slated to be complete by May 31.
Walsh Construction Co. was awarded the $11.3 million Major Moves road and bridge rehabilitation project.
U.S. 52 has been reconstructed from the bridge to just east of Beech Drive, which is north of Greenbush. The project also included overlay and rehabilitation work to the bridges over the Norfolk Southern and CSX Railroads.
Other improvements included shoulder, curbs and gutters, drainage structures, culvert, guardrail and sign replacement.
