State Road 129 is now closed


For what should be the final summer, officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation have announced that State Road 129 from Vevay to Pleasant is now officially closed so that crews can continue the improvement work on the roadway.

The closure became official this past Monday, April 2nd.

Workers will be continuing to make improvements along the 12 1/2-mile stretch of roadway, and will also be widening the bridge over Indian Creek.

Work started on the project in the spring of 2005; and is expected to be completed by December of this year.
