Road work set for U.S.-24

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces road work is planned on U.S.-24 beginning on or after Thursday, July 12, weather permitting.

Work will take place in various locations between Forks of the Wabash Way in the City of Huntington and Ind.-13 in the City of Wabash.

Recently, subcontractors began prepping the roadway for the concrete restoration. The restoration work includes removing and replacing sections of concrete.

During the day, drivers are cautioned to watch for possible stopped traffic, as well as vehicles entering or exiting the construction zone. INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through any active work zone.

The project was awarded to INDOT contractor Pioneer and Associates for $3.7 million. The contract also includes the rehabilitation of several bridges throughout the Fort Wayne District.

Work on U.S.-24 is expected to be completed by early November, weather permitting.
