State Rd 3 at I-74 construction

GREENSBURG, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation plan to close single lanes of State Road 3 traffic Tuesday and Wednesday this week where the north-south highway approaches the overpass at Interstate 74 on the north side of the city of Greensburg. 

Construction crews hope to take advantage of favorable weather to remove temporary asphalt pavement placed as median crossovers during the 2016 construction of the twin bridges. 

Traffic flow will continue at the S.R. 3 bridge site in each direction on single 10-foot lanes.  There will be no ramp closures. 

Costs of this nearly $4 million dollar project replaced the S.R. 3 bridges with two new 4-span concrete beam bridges—each measuring 240 feet in length with 43 feet of clear roadway side-to-side.  

Only clean-up and landscaping will remain after this week’s temporary pavement removal.

Normal traffic at the S.R. 3 bridges was restored last December.
