WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced the eastbound lanes of the Sagamore Parkway bridge over the Wabash River will be closed for around six hours overnight Tuesday, March 19.
Purdue and INDOT researches will be conduction tests on the easternmost bridge pier. The team plans to use 12 loaded tri-axle dump trucks to measure strain on the bridge. Strain gauge sensors previously installed on the foundation piles will monitor eight scenarios.
The test will be performed on the bridge between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Drivers will need to find alternate routes during the tests.
