Entry Description

Construction Coming to State Road 245 in Spencer County

Injunction has been lifted, INDOT reviewing corridor

SPENCER COUNTY, Ind. –State Road 245 in Spencer County is again back on the radar for Indiana Department of Transportation officials.  A court injunction from the previous construction project has been lifted and INDOT will now begin the process of reviewing the corridor for improvements.

In 2009 INDOT had a project to reconstruct roughly 3.4 miles of the roadway from State Road 162 south.  Construction began and part of the work was completed when a lawsuit was filed to stop construction.  A judge ruled and placed an injunction against the project.  Contractor’s crews finished work in areas that had already begun, however the remaining portions of the original project could not be completed.

Now that the lawsuit has been dismissed and the injunction has been lifted, INDOT will begin collecting and reviewing data to determine what improvements will be made to the corridor.  It is estimated that the project will ready for letting in July 2016 with construction to begin later that year. 

INDOT will keep local officials and motorists informed as the project develops.  For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot .
