Bridge work on Burr St moves to phase two

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dunnet Bay Construction Company will move into phase two of a bridge deck overlay project on Burr St over I-80/94 on or after Thursday, July 21.

During phase two, the outside right lanes of Burr St will be closed in each direction from 25th Ave to 29th Ave. The ramp from eastbound I-80/94 to northbound Burr St will also be closed due to the location of the work zone.

The detour for the ramp closure will have motorists continue to Grant St and then use the ramps at the Grant St and I-80/94 interchange to turn around and follow westbound I-80/94 to Burr St.

This work will be ongoing through late August. INDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time when driving through this area and follow traffic directions carefully. Motorists should slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
