Bacon: $3.4 million dedicated to local bridge repairs

STATEHOUSE (March 16, 2016) – State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) announced two bridges in Warrick County are set to be repaired in a $3.4 million bridge renovation project through the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).

“The bridges over Big Creek and Indiana Southern Railroad are scheduled to be repaved as a part of Indiana’s ongoing transportation projects,” Bacon said. “Our infrastructure is a major economic driver, so it’s vital that local roads and bridges are maintained and improved.”

The bridge renovations in Warrick County are part of 65 construction projects totaling $117 million. These INDOT contracts include 24 bridge projects and road paving projects, 13 bridge rehabilitation and replacement projects and maintenance or repairs to an additional six bridges.


Rep. Bacon (R-Chandler) represents portions of Warrick, Pike and Spencer counties.
