The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is developing plans for two proposed State Road (SR) 7 small structure rehabilitations, located in Jennings County. One structure is located 3.38 miles south of the intersection of SR 7 and SR 3 over an Unnamed Tributary (UNT) of Turkey Run, and the second is 0.83 mile south of the same intersection over a UNT of Vernon Fork of Muscatatuck River. The projects entail the demolition and removal of the existing head and wingwalls. Extending and replacing the outlets and inlets with new head and wingwalls. The slopes will be reconstructed to include erosion control measures. The project would also include incidental construction at the approaches and replacement of guardrail as needed. Construction of the two projects will require approximately 1.30 acres combined of new permanent right-of-way. No displacement of residents or businesses will be involved with these projects. The maintenance of traffic is proposing shoulder closure during most of the construction, with possible weekend short closure. This will allow removal and installation of the culvert extensions with minimal disruption. School corporations and emergency services will be notified prior to any construction that would block or limit access. Total combined cost of the projects is estimated at $800,000. At present, we are planning to use both state and federal funds for construction of the project. The Federal Highway Administration and INDOT have agreed that this project falls within the guidelines of a Categorical Exclusion (CE) Level 2 environmental document with no effect to wetlands. Preliminary design plans, along with the CE are available for review at the following locations:
1. Jennings County Public Library, 2375 N SR 3, North Vernon, IN 47265. Phone (812) 346-2091
