State Road 38 Project Meeting March 20

Road Construction Closure in New Castle.

The State Road 38 construction project team plans to hold an open-house forum before the March 20 New Castle city council meeting to answer questions from the public before work begins.

Representatives from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Milestone Contractors, and design-engineering firm Crawford, Murphy & Tilly will be available at the New Castle city council chambers (227 N. Main St.) starting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 20. The council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

The forum will feature an informal open-house setting where residents and other community stakeholders are encouraged to meet with members of the project team, view displays, pick up informational materials, and learn more about the project.

Road closures ahead

Milestone plans to close State Road 38 on or after Wednesday, March 22 to begin construction on a pavement replacement and rehabilitation project in New Castle between State Road 3 (Memorial Drive) and 31st Street.

Road closures will be phased to maximize local access only during construction and complete the project this year. A signed detour will direct through highway traffic south to I-70 via State Road 1 and State Road 109.
