Construction signs are up along state roads 62 and 337 at Corydon for an $884,900 pavement project awarded by the Indiana Dept. of Transportation to Gohmann Asphalt & Construction.
Full-depth patching was expected to begin this week in concrete sections of the project route.
Early each day, workers will saw cut and remove failed concrete at individual worksites then pour concrete patches.
Traffic will be directed around each worksite.
In the evening, after the new concrete cures and is tested, the roadway is expected to be reopened to traffic.
Concrete patching will be followed by work in asphalt sections of the route. State roads 62 and 337 will be patched with HMA asphalt; both highways will be milled 1-1/2 inches and repaved. Flaggers will direct traffic around moving worksites during patching and paving operations.
Construction activities along S.R. 62 begins at S.R. 135 and continues to S.R. 337/Chestnut Street, a distance of 1.33 miles.
S.R. 337 pavement operations start at the Little Indian Creek bridge and proceed to S.R. 135, a distance of 1.35 miles.
This pavement preservation contract, awarded last winter, calls for work to be completed by Oct. 31.
