State Road 135 in Jackson County closing for a month

State Road 135 will be closing in Jackson County starting Monday as crews replace a culvert.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, the work will be happening about a mile north of the intersection with State Road 58 in Freetown. The work is  set to begin next week and take up to 30 days to complete. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.

A detour will take traffic State Road 258 to State Road 258 to State Road 11, then onto Interstate 65 and State Road 46.

INDOT says this project is part of a $4.5 million contract awarded to Force Construction.

INDOT reminds you to slow down, to drive without distractions and to be alert to worker safety in all work zones.
