Traffic restrictions return to Indiana's U.S. 50 Bypass

Posted: Updated:

NORTH VERNON, Ind. (WDRB) -- Lane restriction signs are back up on the U.S. 50 Bypass in North Vernon now that construction activity has resumed after the winter hiatus.

The Indiana Department of Transportation removed signs when traffic returned to normal over the construction break, but have posted them again now that spring weather has returned.

INDOT urges motorists to drive with caution through work zones and adhere to the lower speeds required by regulatory signage.  Those lower speed limits will be enforced.
 
This construction marks the second year of Phase I in the $21.9 million Bypass Project at North Vernon.  By the end of the construction season, a 4.5-mile, two-lane partial bypass connecting existing U.S. Highway 50 near C.R. 400 West with State Road 3 in North Vernon should be in place. 

Phase I—the western section—is being built under two contracts with two prime contractors.  Milestone is charged with building the bypass from C.R. 400W to C.R. 150N, the southern portion.  Force Construction is working on the route from C.R. 150N to S.R. 3, the northern portion. 

Preliminary plans and environmental documents for Phase II of the U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass Project will be presented at a public hearing to be scheduled in June or July.
