135 South closure delayed one week
Updated on: 04.11.14

The closure of State Road 135 South to replace a damaged culvert has been delayed one week because of forecasted rain, said the Indiana Department of Transportation's Harry Maginity.

The highway was scheduled to be closed Monday-Wednesday. April 14-16 at the "second slab." Instead, the work will be done Monday-Wednesday, April 21-23. The road might stay closed until Thursday, April 24 depending on how smoothly the job goes.

An INDOT crew will remove the asphalt and the culvert and replace both at the second of four creek crossings in the Camp Roberts area. This crossing -- at the yellow house, for people familiar with the road -- has been flooded for more than two weeks.

People who live north of that slab will be able to access their driveways, but all other local traffic for 135 South will have to take Mt. Liberty Road off State Road 46 East in Gnaw Bone to Valley Branch Road. Valley Branch intersects with 135 South at Van Buren Elementary School.
