450 North reduced to one lane of traffic

County Road 450N, from Talley Road to County Road 425E, northeast of Columbus, will be reduced to one lane of travel today, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., said Stacey Gross, Bartholomew County Highway Department technical supervisor.

The highway department said the lane restriction, which will allow contractors to trim and remove trees, would be dependent on the weather.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.
