Traffic to be stopped on SR57
GLEZEN — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that traffic on SR 57 in Pike County will be stopped temporarily.
On Monday traffic will be stopped intermittently where Interstate 69 intersects with SR 57, approximately 4.0 miles north of SR 64 in Oakland City. Multiple stoppages will take place, none lasting more than 15 minutes between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. local time, each day. Stopping traffic is required to allow bridge beams to be delivered and set for the new I-69 bridge over SR 57. All lanes will be stopped in each direction as beams are off-loaded from the trucks and sat on the piers. Local authorities will be on site to aid in traffic control. Inclement weather could postpone the stoppages.
