The Indiana Department of Transportation announces an intermittent flagging operation on State Road 28 for continued work on a resurfacing and rehabilitation project in Frankfort, starting on or after Saturday, April 1. The main road will be open to traffic at all times, with intermittent flagging between County Road 200 and Hoke Avenue. The restrictions are expected to last through early July, weather permitting.
Starting on or after Thursday, April 6, crews will also be working in the eastbound and westbound turn lanes from S.R. 28 to southbound McKinley. This work is to make the turn more accessible for larger vehicles. Those areas will be restricted through early May, weather permitting.
This contract was awarded to E & B Paving LLC for $17.9 million and will resurface or reconstruct portions of S.R. 28 from C.R. 200 W. east to Jackson Street, the addition of a right turn lane from westbound S.R. 28 to northbound Jackson Street, and then continue with the reconstruction of S.R. 28 from Jackson Street eastward to Hoke Ave. The project also includes the addition of dedicated left turn lanes on S.R. 28 at Clay Street, the reconstruction of the storm water system, reconstruction of sidewalks to be ADA compliant on the south side of S.R. 28 from West St. to Hoke Ave., and a shared use path on the north side of S.R. 28 for the total length of the project.
INDOT reminds motorists to slow down, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone.
Why didn’t this get done when they were doing the work for the last couple of years? This seems like a waste of money and labor to redo the work that was just done.
