RANDOLPH COUNTY, Ind. {August 27, 2015}      E & B Paving will begin a construction project  Monday, August 31, on the 6¼-mile pavement section of State Road 1 between U.S. Highway 36 and the Cabin Creek bridge near Farmland.

Residents will continue to have access to their homes during construction operations.  A state detour reroutes all other motorists via U.S. 36 at Modoc east to U.S. 27 at Lynn, north to S.R. 32 at Winchester and west to S.R. 1 at Farmland.  Southbound motorists are routed via S.R. 32 from Farmland to U.S. 27 to U.S. 36 to S.R. 1 at Modoc.

E & B Paving, the state’s contractor, will re-rubbleize the roadbed adding a higher count of cement to solidify the highway’s base in accord with recent analyses of pavement and soil conditions.  A 2¾-inch intermediate layer of asphalt will top the base, followed by a 1½-inch surface lift of asphalt.

INDOT officials remind motorists that S.R. 1 is closed from Modoc to Cabin Creek.  This closure is expected to remain in effect into December.
