A portion of State Road 39 will close on or after April 1 for a pavement replacement project in Clayton.
The Indiana Department of Transportation has planned three separate closures this year.
This first one is for a small structure replacement between Crawford Street and York Avenue. The road is scheduled to be open to traffic Aug. 21, 2013.
Hunt Paving Company, Inc. was awarded the $3.5 million Major Moves contract. This project will replace the pavement on S.R. 39 from just south of Amo Street to north of Ader Avenue in Clayton. The project will include the reconstruction of the pavement of S.R. 39 within the project limits along with new sidewalks, drive approaches, curbs and gutters, a new enclosed storm drainage system, and two new box culverts.
The detour follows U.S. 40 to State Road 267 to U.S. 36. Local traffic will be able to utilize County Road 0 for access into the town of Clayton.
