[INDOT] US 27 Construction Resumes in Liberty
Start Date: 2/24/2012
End Date: 2/24/2012
Entry Description

US 27 Construction Resumes
in Liberty

Highway Closure Expected
in Early March

 

LIBERTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is continuing its reconstruction of US 27 through Liberty. 

 

Crews from Dave O’Mara, the state’s contractor, resumed water main relocation on Seminary Street on Monday, February 20.  Once the water line is installed, full-depth reconstruction of US 27 from Union Street to Eaton Street will begin.

 

INDOT and O’Mara will close this segment of US 27 to through traffic on or after Monday, March 5.  Access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during the second phase of construction, which is expected to be complete this summer.  The third and final phase of the project will follow.

 

The construction schedule has been modified after evaluating the current project status and the progress made in 2011.  The intended goal is to have Main Street open to traffic by Memorial Day to accommodate increased traffic during the summer recreation season.  Once Main Street is open to traffic, crews will continue reconstruction of US 27 on Seminary Street and College Corner Avenue. 

 

Because the roadway segment between Union and Eaton Streets contains US 27 and State Road 44, official detours, which must follow state highways, are necessary for both.  The official detour for State Road 44 is State Road 1 to US 40 to US 27.  The official detour for US 27 is State Road 227 to Ohio 177 to Ohio 73 to US 27 in Oxford, Ohio.  As State Road 101 will not be accessible from US 27/State Road 44 while Main Street is reconstructed, through traffic will be detoured on State Road 1 to US 40 to US 27.

 

The third and final phase of the project will reconstruct US 27 on College Corner Avenue/Liberty Avenue from Eaton Street to the southern town limits.  The project has a contract completion date of May 2013, although INDOT and Dave O’Mara Contractor hope to have major construction complete before next winter.

 

INDOT reminds drivers to follow posted speed limits and be cautious while driving through all work zones.  Drivers can learn the locations of work zones and highway restrictions before they depart by calling INDOT’s TrafficWise at 1-800-261-ROAD (7623) or view an online map at www.TrafficWise.IN.gov.  Quick links to work zone safety tips, information about restrictions and roadway conditions, as well as the latest INDOT news can be found at www.indot.in.gov.
