Traffic Alert: Projects closing SR 162, SR 164, and SR 64 in Dubois Co.

DUBOIS CO., Ind. (WFIE) – The Indiana Department of Transportation is closing three Dubois County roads for different projects.

Officials say all will begin on or around Monday, May 26.

State Road 162 near Ferdinand will be closed between County Road 700 South and C.R. 815 South to excavate and replace a drainage pipe.

Officials say the road will be completely closed to through traffic with detours marked at S.R. 264 and S.R. 64.

Local traffic will have access up to the point of closure but all traffic should use the official detour following I-64, U.S. 231 and S.R. 64.

Work is expected to last until the end of May depending upon weather conditions.

Crews will also close S.R. 164 near Jasper.

Officials say it will be about 900 feet east of Greener Road just outside of Jasper to replace a drainage culvert.

This project will require excavation across all lanes of traffic, and then replacement of the pavement.

During this project local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but all through traffic should use the official detour following U.S. 231, S.R. 56 and S.R. 545.

Work is expected to last for about a day depending upon weather conditions.

Crews will begin at 7 a.m. However, inclement weather could cause delays in the timeline.

Officials say there will also be complete road closure for State Road 64 near Huntingburg for a bridge project.

Crews will close the bridge spanning Rock Creek, about 2 miles west of S.R. 161. This project is for repairs to the bridge deck.

During this project local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but all through traffic should use the official detour following S.R. 61, S.R .68 and S.R. 161.

Work is expected to last until the end of June, depending upon weather conditions.
