Sidewalks and ADA-complaint curb ramps are being poured on the west side of South State Street in North Vernon as the Indiana Department of Transportation's (INDOT) $3 million auxiliary lane project along State Road 3 moves forward.
INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that officials anticipate paving work to begin August 25 on the west half of the highway. Dave O'Mara, the state's contractor, will place a deep asphalt base on top of treated. Then, paving crews will add an intermediate lift that can support traffic through the construction zone. Sometime after Labor Day, Maginity says that motorists will be routed to the new west-side pavement section, allowing construction activities to shift to the east side of State Road 3.
This project extends 0.95 miles from Smith Street to U.S. Highway 50. Maginity says it includes reconstruction of the north-south highway, installing sanitary and storm sewer lines and building sidewalks with ADA ramps.
