U.S. Highway 52 was reopened to traffic Friday, Nov. 30, in Rush and Franklin Counties after the Indiana Department of Transportation expedited an ambitious resurfacing project for completion in less than a month. The 11-mile section of U.S. 52 between State Road 3 at Rushville and S.R. 244 at Andersonville has been milled and repaved with a new asphalt surface.
Several pavement-exception locations along the route remain to be paved next year when replacement culverts are installed at those sites.
Milestone-the state’s contractor for this $1,289,726 district resurfacing project-worked seven days a week during daylight hours to satisfy the aggressive construction schedule.
Some “finish” work may continue into this week, with flaggers directing motorists around crews.
