Lane Restrictions Coming To Tanners Creek Bridge This Week

Posted On September 11, 2017

Press release by the Indiana Department of Transportation

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close lanes on eastbound U.S. Highway 50 near mile marker 164.0 at Tanner’s Creek tomorrow and Wednesday nights (SEPT. 12 & 13) while contracted crews pour concrete to construct the bridge’s deck.

Motorists will be restricted to a single lane beginning at 7 p.m.

Sunesis Construction, Indiana’s contractor for this $6 million bridge replacement project, is rebuilding the south half of U.S. 50’s Tanner’s Creek bridge—replacing the old 3-lane structure with one that will accommodate four lanes.  The north half structure was built in the initial phase of construction which began last October.

Preliminary deck-pour operations are scheduled to occur tomorrow from 7 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.

The actual deck pour should begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday—restricting travel lanes until 7 a.m. Thursday.  All work is weather dependent.

INDOT officials anticipate fully opening the new U.S. 50 5-span bulb-T beam bridge to traffic by Thanksgiving.
