Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E&B Paving Inc. plans to close S.R. 60 at the Salem Bypass on Tuesday, July 6, to continue construction on a $2 million roundabout project that began earlier this year.

State Road 60 is expected to remain closed through late August with an official detour route of I-65 to S.R. 56. The detour for the Salem Bypass will continue to follow U.S. 150 to S.R. 56.

The project will upgrade the existing two-way stop intersection to a single-lane roundabout with 12-foot truck aprons, which aims to enhance safety by reducing the number and severity of crashes at this location. The contract also includes full-depth pavement replacement, guardrail work, and intersection lighting.

The contract was awarded last fall and the new intersection is now scheduled to open in late August following design changes to the splitter islands on each leg of the roundabout. Additional construction activity may take place later in the year with minimal interruptions to traffic.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change. More project information can be found on the INDOT website.
