U.S. 31 in Jackson County to close near Uniontown for culvert replacement

JACKSON COUNTY — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractors is scheduled to close U.S. 31 approximately 2.5 miles north of Uniontown on or after Tuesday, April 9, to complete a culvert replacement in Jackson County.

The closure will take place between East County Road 50S and West Base Road and is expected to take up to five weeks, weather permitting. Crews will begin to place signage in the area prior to the start of construction. During the closure, motorists should use the official detour route which follows State Road 250 to I-65 to U.S. 50.

This project is part of a $4.5 million contract awarded to Dave O’Mara in January 2023. The contract includes a total of six bridge projects. INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and avoid distractions when traveling near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
