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.
