The Indiana Department of Transportation announces State Road 28, east of Jackson Street (State Road 39), on Walnut will close Monday, May 2 for resurfacing and reconstruction work. This will affect the stretch of State Road 28 between County Road 200 W. and Hoke Ave. This closure is expected to last through the end of the 2022 construction season.
The official detour follows State Road 38 to U.S. 421 to Michigantown to Washington Street and back to Jackson Street.
This project 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. The completion date for this project is late November of this year.
