State Road 46 opens

Follow The Republic:

3:45 p.m. update:

Bartholomew County Emergency Operations Center reports that State Road 46 is open again at State Road 11 after replacement of the railroad tracks this weekend.

Motorists are asked to continue to use due care as they travel in this area and to remain alert for construction crews and equipment.

Noon update:

State Road 46, just west of State Road 11, is expected to reopen as planned today after four days of railroad construction.

"It's right on schedule," Columbus Police Department Chief Jason Maddix said Monday. "They were supposed to start paving at 7:30 this morning. So it should be wrapped up, hopefully, early this afternoon. Our hope is to have it open before the rush hour this evening."

Maddix said closing the intersection went as well as city officials envisioned. He reported three wrecks around what he considered detour areas. None caused major injuries.

"There's been few issues," Maddix said. "Just some minor traffic congestion on (County Road) 200S and Terrace Lake Road. But we've been out there monitoring the intersection and things have gone smoothly."
