S.R. 9 Patching


BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind.—After a delayed start, the $657,948 Indiana Department of Transportation District Pavement Project on State Road 9—between Columbus and the Shelby County line—begins tomorrow morning with asphalt patching at the Town of Hope.

Repair operations will advance in the S.R. 9 northbound lane through Friday—weather permitting—from Hope to the county line. Next week, partial-depth asphalt patches will be placed in the S.R. 9 southbound lane from the Shelby County line to S.R. 46/25th Street northeast of Columbus. Flaggers will be present to route motorists around worksites.

Dave O’Mara, the state’s contractor, is charged with milling and resurfacing 8.5 miles of north-south highway with a thin asphalt overlay. The project also calls for construction of ADA-compliant curb ramps at Hope.

A schedule for pouring the concrete ramps will be made known at a later time.
