State Road 46 to close in Decatur County

DECATUR COUNTY — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. plans to close State Road 46 starting on or after Sept. 26, for a box culvert replacement project in Decatur County.

The road will close just over nine miles east of U.S. 421 for up to 45 days, between County Road 850E and County Road 950E near New Point. Traffic will be routed along State Road 3, I-74 and State Road 229 during the closure.

The $1 million contract was awarded to Dave O’Mara in September 2021 and includes two additional projects on State Road 46, both located in Decatur County; a small structure replacement near Morris that was completed last month and a deck replacement on the State Road 46 bridge over Sand Creek planned for next year.
