The Indiana Department of Transportation is restricting traffic on State Road 156 near Wade Hill Road south of Patriot at a three-span bridge over Fisk Creek at its confluence with the Ohio River.
Temporary signals on either end of the 143-foot-long State Road 156 structure — located .97 miles south of State Road. 250 — now control one-direction-at-a-time traffic flow through October.
Force Construction of Columbus, INDOT’s contractor for this $976,250 Switzerland County bridge rehabilitation project, will pour new concrete end sections of the bridge deck — then overlay the entire deck with a thin polymeric epoxy. Bridge repairs and new approach slabs are included in the project.
State Road 156’s traffic count is 1,400 vehicles per day.
