INDOT to have open house on State Road 252 project

EDINBURGH, Ind.— In partnership with USI Consultants Inc., the Indiana Department of Transportation will host a public hearing for a roadway reconstruction project on State Road 252 in Edinburgh on April 27 at the Edinburgh Community High School cafeteria (300 Keeley St., Edinburgh, IN). The meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the project and provide official comments to the project team.

As proposed, the just over $6 million project includes pavement replacement along State Road 252 between U.S. 31 and I-65, a small structure replacement east of U.S. 31, and replacement/expansion of sidewalks along State Road 252. The project aims to enhance safety along the corridor and reset the service life of the roadway. The contract is currently scheduled to let to contractors in fall of 2024.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. to allow the public time to view displays and interact with project personnel before the meeting. A formal presentation will begin at 6 p.m. Project information will also be posted on the INDOT Seymour District webpage prior to April 27 and can be viewed any time.

Questions and comments may be submitted in-person at the information meeting or via email to Susan Castle ([email protected]) with Metric Environmental.  All comments are requested by end of business on Wednesday, May 11. INDOT will follow current CDC health guidelines at the meeting.
