Traffic Switch on U.S. 36 in Fortville
HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Milestone Contractors announces traffic switch on U.S. 36 in Fortville.
Beginning on or after Thursday, November 9, crews will switch traffic on U.S. 36 to the south side of U.S. 36. There will be two way traffic with one westbound lane and one eastbound lane. This traffic switch will take two days, weather permitting. All side streets south of U.S. 36 will be open except Maple Street. All northbound access from U.S.36 will be closed. Motorists will be able to access the north side of U.S. 36 via State Road 13 or Staat Street.
During this new phase of traffic, crews will:
- install a temporary pedestrian crossing at Merrill Street
- mill existing pavement in the former westbound lane of U.S. 36
- saw cut approaches, new water line and storm sewer
This configuration will continue through November 2024, weather permitting. The official detour of this project is State Road 234 to State Road 9.
INDOT reminds drivers to consider worker safety by slowing down, using caution and avoiding distractions when traveling in and near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
