The construction efforts for the Bretzville Junction project will soon be underway.

Starting on or after this upcoming Monday, crews will begin working in the area at the intersection of State Roads 64 and 162 to add left turn lanes to the intersection for north and south bound traffic as well as adding a stoplight.

INDOT recently awarded a contract for the project to Lutgring Brothers Inc. of Tell City for $1 million.

INDOT advises that motorists can expect narrowed lanes on S.R. 162 as they begin dirt work for the added lanes.  Crews will also begin the installation of electrical lines for the new signals. The signal will be activated once the new turn lanes have been constructed and all pavement markings are in place.  All work is anticipated to be complete on this project in October of this year.

INDOT encourages motorists to slow down and pay special attention as motorists become familiar with the new traffic patterns at this location.  For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot and www.trafficwise.in.gov .
