MONTGOMERY COUNTY — The Indiana Department of Transportation announces the resurfacing project on State Road 234 continues in Montgomery County. They contractor schedule has changed due to weather issues. Milestone will complete a cold in-place recycle under the three remaining separate road closures of three days with the estimated times below:
• July 6-July 8 closed from U.S. 231 to C.R. 250E
• July 9-July 11 closed from C.R. 250E to the west town limits of Ladoga
• July 12-July 14 closed from the east town limits of Ladoga to the Big Raccoon Creek Bridge
Access will be maintained for homes and businesses, as well as for trash collection and mail delivery.
A cold in-place recycle treatment, a type of resurface similar to a full-depth reclamation, is an environmentally friendly method of removing and reusing the existing asphalt surface. It involves grinding off the top 2 to 5 inches of the existing asphalt surface and mixing the crushed asphalt with an asphalt recycling agent, and placing it back down with a paver. This results in a much stronger, stable base for the new road. It also results in less hauling away of materials
This contract also includes State Road 234 from Kingman east to the Fountain/Montgomery County line which is completed. Plus, the section of U.S. 231 from State Road 32 in Crawfordsville to S.R. 234 is underway and work is scheduled to last through Aug. 6.
The contractor will then begin on or after Aug. 1 through Oct. 6 on U.S. 231 from S.R. 234 to U.S. 36.
Milestone Contractors L.P. was awarded the $11.9 million contract. INDOT reminds motorists to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
