State Road 28 Closing Early Wednesday Morning for Utility Work

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces State Road 28 westbound will close in Frankfort between Doyal Street and State Road 39 (Jackson St.) on Wednesday, June 23 at 4 a.m. The roadway will be closed for approximately one hour for the contractor to install a relocated gas main crossing S.R. 28.

The eastbound lanes of S.R. 28 remain closed. The west end of the project is scheduled to be completed October 31 of this year. The official detour follows I-65 to S.R. 47 to S.R. 39 and back.

This project was awarded to E & B Paving LLL 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 American with Disabilities Act (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.

This project is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2022.
