Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Milestone Contractors is scheduled to temporarily close S.R. 56 in Salem for road reconstruction work.

On or after Tuesday, October 10, crews will close S.R. 56 between the intersection of S.R. 135 and S.R. 60 in Salem to lay surface mix. Work is expected to take up to three days, weather permitting. Access to all properties will be maintained while work is in progress. The official detour will follow S.R. 135 to U.S. 150 to S.R. 56.

INDOT reminds motorists to slow down, use caution and drive distraction-free in and near work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

Please Note: All local traffic will have access through side streets.
